Hey, I have a Ric HB1 that I really hate the sound of in single coil mode, so I've taken it out of my bass and want to rewire it into series humbucking. The problem is, I get no reading/signal when hooked up this way.
Here's the layout: http://www.rickenbacker.com/pdfs/19521-HB1%20Wiring.pdf
When wired as it shows,
black + red reads 7.6k.
clear + red reads 7.6k.
blue/ground + red reads nothing. It should read around 14-15k if I'm not mistaken.
No matter how I connect the wires, I get this same result where only individual coils can be read. I reflowed the solder at the eyelets 'cause I've read that this can be a problem with the HB1, but nothing changed. http://www.rickenbacker.com/forum/vi...hp?f=2&t=11739
This guy had a similar problem with the output, however he was able to read 14k right off the bat. Unlike his pickup, the wires and labels on mine do correspond with the wiring diagram.
Am I doing something wrong here?
