Just looking for some advice on what I could have done wrong re-wiring my Les Paul. I have swapped out the stock pick ups for an SH-4 in the bridge and an SH-1 in the neck. The neck sounds fine but the bridge is completely under-powered, sounding weaker than a single coil but not 'out of phase' (the tone and volume pot seem to work okay).
I've followed this schematic correctly as far as I can tell. My understanding of it was that I need to solder the green/unshielded wires together to the the corresponding volume pot and the black wires to the bracket that leads to the tone pots.
I'm pretty useless when it comes to soldering and the second-hand JB (from 1993) didn't have too much flex to it so I've had to stretch it slightly to reach the bridge volume pot. I've re-soldered the bridge volume pot and will get one of my mates to check it later. Could it be a dud pick up? I think it was a 40-watt iron I used. Is that too hot?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
