    I recently just wired in some SB3-3 quarter pounders and for some reason they seem quiet to me compared to my old stock fender pups. Could the lack of noise be due to a wiring problem? Everything sounds completely clean and the tone and volume knob work correctly. Is it my ears just playing tricks on me?
