    I have a SD BG 1400 humbucker in my bridge and a Shaw humbucker in my neck and am loving both. I used to have the BG 1400 in an esquire with a push pull pot to split the coils and it sounded great when I had the humbucker split. I have now had the switch rewired to
    1) neck humbucker with tone
    2) bridge split (single coil) with tone
    3) bridge humbucker no tone
    In position two the volume is now half the volume of it's humbucker mode and sounds a lot thinner than it use to. How can I wire this up so I can get my single coil sound back and strong?

    Not enough info there...

    How was it wired before, when you had it in the Esquire? Did it shunt to hot, shunt to ground, or split? Which coil remained active? How about now?
