    So wiring has never been my specialty and I am having some issues getting this to work. I have never had an issue hooking up single coils, but this is my first real go at humbuckers.

    I am doing an HSH with a strat setup, VTT and a 5 way switch. I have been using my standard strat wiring which looks pretty much like this.

    The pickups are Epi probuckers. They had a quick connect which I took off and I have been going by this. I have the green and white tied off, black and bare going to ground, and the red to the switch. The guitar is a hardtail so the ground is running under the bridge and into one of the screw holes. Pots are not push/pull. My uneducated guess would be that I have an issue with the HB wiring. I am getting a signal from the single coil, but virtually nothing from the HB. Can anyone offer some advice to where I might be screwing up? Thanks in advance!
