First build electronic issues

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by mjwhit, Apr 8, 2009.

  1. I finished my first build a few months ago, but still have one more issue to deal with that i have been putting of fixing.

    My problem is that it is really quiet.To get a useable volume i plug it into the high input and turn the input all the way up on my amp, and even then i could do with more volume.

    All the electronics work as they should. Its a single humbucker wired with a series.parrallel switch, a volume and a tone.
    I have played with the pickup height, because that was my first instinct.

    Was i right in using 500k pots?

    Any ideas why this thing has next to no volume?

    Sorry about the photo.

    Thanks guys
