i just did some rewiring on my tele. i have a nocaster bridge and a don mare stelly neck. i had to wire the bridge pickup with the wires swapped to avoid the dreaded out of phase middle position. but there's a problem. the neck pickup sounds great, and the middle and bridge work, but the bridge position hums like crazy. when i touch the bridge it pops a bit and the buzzing lowers some. also, when i touch the control plate. when i run my fingers along the strings, there is a nasty distortion. what's going on edit: i should mention that the bridge pickup has a base plate, so it should be grounded without the wire under the bridge. up until the the new neck pickup, there was never a problem there.
