    I have a 1998 American Deluxe Tele with a Joe Barden neck pickup. The middle and bridge pickups are the Fender Noiseless that came with the guitar. I like how it sounds in all the positions except when the neck and bridge pickups are both active (positions 4B and 5B in attached diagram). The JB sounds great by itself, but when I add the bridge pickup, the sounds thins out quite a bit. It's not horrible, but I feel I should get more out of it. I'm thinking about replacing the bridge pickup with another JB, but was wondering if anyone here had any suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Sounds like it might be wired out of phase.

    Thanks for your reply. I suppose that could be the case, but I doubt it. I bought the guitar used in about 2000, and put in the JB about 2003. Other than that it is stock as far as I know. I'll have to double check.
