    So I purchased a solderless EMG MMCS and BTC preamp thinking the install would be quick and easy. I'm not sure if there is an issue with the pup, preamp or wiring. When all snapped together and plugged in, I get nothing. What's interesting is that when testing volume only and disconnect the battery cable, my tuner works but there is no volume when plugged into an amp.

    I attached a pic of the wiring. Here's a link to EMG's website. Does anyone see anything wrong with my wiring? I checked and double checked the jack - I'm certain it is correct. Thanks!

    I don't see something wrong on the pictures. Check the pickup connector, check the connections with that tape, the battery ones. What about your battery, is it new? Is there any chance to miss something outside the cavity, I mean like cables with mute switch, etc.
