    Default JBJr split question

    Despite myself I managed to wire up my strat yesterday. It seems to work perfectly. I do have 1 question in regards to 60 cycle hum. I expected the hum in the 1 an 3. It is silent in 2 and 5, but the 4 notch. Bridge and Mid.
    I chose to do the autosplit mod to try to maximize the quack I would get from there, also to retain the hum cancelling.
    Well, it does sound more quacky, definetly usable, but it does hum a bit. Did I do something wrong, or is it possible that the individual coils of the JBJr doesn't offer the cancelling.
    Thanks in advance.

    Anyone have a place to start looking?
    At first I thought grounds, but it only Hums in that one position.

    Did you split using the white and red? If so, you may need to use black ad green to split instead.

    Yeah I split using the Red & White as shown in the SD Diargam. So what gets grounded, and what replaces where the black wire goes?

    I'm not sure which one to use for ground or hot.

    You'll need to use either the red or white for the switch and the other for ground.

    Not to be too much of a pest, but why would the diagram be wrong? Or is my JBJr that has been wired differently? It's being mated to a SD APS1 so there shouldn't be incompatibility/phase issues like I had with the Fenders.
    Just currious.
    Thanks again, i'll tear it apart in a couple of days.

    You're not out of phase, nor is the wiring diagram wrong. It's just that the bridge when split isn't RW/RP in relation with the mid position single. You can get the same effect by switching your neck and mid pickups around.

    The JB jr sounds cool in parallel.
