Howdy, I have been to my wits and and back... and away again I'm trying to get my tele wired with a three way switch, with an additional switch in a CTS push/pull to change the middle setting to series in the switch up position. Here is the diagram I'm using: The first thing that happened was that I had a good signal in the neck position, and a good middle is parallel, but no bridge pickup in position 1. In the series position I was getting the neck pickup only. Having checked and rechecked all my connections ad nauseum, I began to suspect that I had my grounds confused on my neck pickup. I have white, black, and blue, and assumed that the blue was the cover ground without really taking the time to examine it before I popped it in. Today I pulled the pickup far enough to see that the blue wire was indeed the cover ground, but my intuition persisted and I pulled both neck pickup grounds from the wiring. I connected the blue wire to the 3 way swich (top left terminal in the photo) and every setting sounded as it should, but I was getting the cover noise when i touched it. The black neck ground wire was just hanging loose. When I started connecting the black wire to the common ground to see what happened, I lost my bridge pickup signal again. Weird. Any thoughts?
