    I've just put a set of warpigs in my 2027 and I have followed the wiring diagram exactly and for some reason in position 5 (neck pickup in series) I am getting a very weak signal even though position 4 which should be the same pickup in parallel is working fine.

    I've put pickups in before but its always been like for like wiring, this time thats not the case.

    The pickup switch positions are for

    Bridge full
    B+N inner coil
    B+N full
    Neck parallel
    Neck full

    Just looking for a picture (Not a diagram) to compare my wiring before I admit defeat and pay someone...

    Cheers

    Could it be the pickup phase/polarity issue? Try flipping the neck pickup.

    I had something like this happen on a BC Rich I flipped. So, I let it sit for a day (so the frustration level would drop down...ha!), then went back and re-did each solder joint related to the pickup I was having a weak/intermittent signal with and boom, fixed it.

    This is probably good advice, I'll take it apart later clean the wires up and re-do it.

    Pickup companies really need to bite the bullet and move to a plug and play style fitting system. Yeah I get that it would require investment but once it's done you sell more pickups.

    Eg, "I'm bored, I'll go buy a random pickup and try it out"

    Instead of

    "I'd get new pickups but fuck wiring them in or paying someone else to..."

    Yeah, or at least someone else to third-party an install kit. "Just plug the pup wire into this clip that then connects to the electronics with no soldering." Someone could make a killing with that idea and then sell it to Fender or someone with deeper pockets than the average start up guitar pickup company.
