      Well,if you can read and "apply" a wiring doagram,then you're more
      savvy than I assumed...this is a good thing!!
      1) Start by checking the leads from the pick-ups.
      They should "match" (colors not reversed)
      Sometimes,we reverse the middle p/u wires so that it cancells hum
      when used in combination with another IE: neck/mid or mid/bridge
      2) Make sure the switch /controls/output jack/and bridge are all
      eventually connected to a common ground DIRECTLY.(that is..without
      going "thru" another component)
      let me know how far you get with this.
