    This is my favorite pickup config but for some reason I can not get it wired right. Always some ground noise problem.

    That Cab is a beauty! Congrats.

    (You'll get the wiring figured out.)

    How is it wired?

    I use this. You would just need to change to wire the 3way toggle.. I actually have a tele with a 3 way toggle wired like this.. same as what you have..

    Have you checked the polarity of both pickups?

    did the bridge ground and shielded the cavity and pickup routes. My bridge pickup crapped out today and waiting for a replacement.

    That is a nice looking guitar. Clean and simple.

    TV Jones Classic in the neck and I had a Classic Plus in the bridge but now have a Power Tron in its place. The neck is a Warmoth and the body is from Guitar Mills, swamp Ash with a Danish oil finish.

    The Plus was a demo and TV Jones is taking care of it. Great pickups from a great company.

    I'm getting some work done on my maple/ ebony neck and swapped out for a maple/ maple neck while I wait. I like the boatneck profile on this one. The Ibanez decal was a Paul Gilbert joke. I was going to put a faux f hole on it and get Pauls signature on it.

    I used what I guess would be called a "star ground" I soldered a ground wire to every location that needed grounded and then tied all the wires together. I did not shield mine and with TV Jones Powertrons it is quiet. I used a stacked concentric pot and the black ring is the tone.
