Re: dimarzio hs3 in fgm100
I just had a look at my FGM100, it's a 1991 as well.
The red and white wires are certainly joined together and taped. It's difficult to see the rest clearly as there's a load of wires in there all within a very small space!
Of the wires coming into the control cavity, I can see the two bigger cables from the two humbuckers, so I'll ignore them.
The rest are single wires coming into the control cavity, there's a red and white, joined together as mentioned above.
A black goes to ground on the back of the pot.
A green goes to ground on the back of the pot.
Another black goes to the selector switch, onto the 4th connector down from the top on the left, on the trem side of the selector connections.
Finally there's an uncoloured wire going to ground on the back of the pot.
Not much help, I know.
If you've got yours wired up the same from the pup itself, maybe it's the switch connections that are causing your problem, perhaps a short or missing connection on there?
Probably safest to take it into a tech for a looksee if you're still stuck.
