So, I got one of these lil fellas to run 3 single coils in series but I’m encountering a problem.

The provided wiring diagram only accounts for normal 2 lead strat pickups, however I’m doing a tele where all three pickups have grounded covers. Middle has a removable cover, middle is lipstick, bridge is a GFS ‘gold foil’. If I attach the additional grounds the middle pickup drops out when running in series, but all three run in parallel. If I detach the additional grounds from the pots, all three run in series but there is a massive ground loop.

My working theory here is that since the ground from the middle pickup is already being sent to the pot and not the switch, that the other grounds knock it out of series when added to the equation.
