I just replaced the bridge pickup in my Indio T type...I soldiered the new one in exactly like the stock one was .i have no sound from the new one. Looking at the soldering job it looks ok but I did see a blob behind the switch lug..could this be shorting to the switch body? Here is a pic it’s the yellow wire.thanks in advance

    What I'd do: Get a multi-meter, set it to "ohms" so you're using it as a continuity measurement. Set p/u switch to bridge position and plug in a working cable. Measure between tip and shaft. No resistance means you've grounded the hot lead. "Open" means there's no connection between the hot lead and the switch, or the pickup's shield and the ground. The reading you should get is the pickup's impedance.
