    Hi there, I recently picked up a new set of the Gen.4 Noiseless pickups for my strat. After installing them, I checked the setup with the old screwdriver tapping method to make sure it all worked. The neck pickup is much louder than the middle and bridge. I even put the pickguard on the guitar and strung it up to verify and the neck is very loud and the middle and bridge are barely there.

    I've done guitar electronics for a long time and never had any issues like this, but this is also my first set of noiseless pickups. Am I missing something stupid, or did I maybe get a messed up set of pickups? Since it's my first noiseless set I followed the supplied wiring diagram and used all new pots (250k like the diagram) and switch. I even reflowed the solder on the wires coming from the little pcbs on the bottom of the pickups but no luck.

    I would appreciate any help!
