Hey Guys,

I recently Purchased a RGA 121 and with that i have bought 2 new pickups, 59' for the Neck, and JB for the Bridge.

Now i have just replaced the pickups with the same wiring. every position works bar position 2 which changes the Pickup to parallel. Cant figure why. any ideas?

Here is a link to the wiring i.imgur.com/jhPLoUI.png Note: the new pickups are 4 conductor also.

Thanks,
Keith

You mean position 4, position 2 is both pickups split, Duncan's have different colour coding please tell us which colours you used for the parallel wiring.
yes, duncan color codes are different.

your switch should look something like (from left terminal to right terminal.
1. Black wire from bridge
2. red wire from the neck and jumper to lug 7
3. Black wire from the neck.
4. output to volume pot
5. red and white wire from bridge pickup
6. should be a ground wire (could solder the green from the neck)
7. jumper from lug 2
8. white wire from neck
