I cannot get it to work. I think its because the new tone switch isn't wired correctly to the pickup switch. It appears from pic 3 that the tone switch has two connections to the pickup switch. With the switches upside down and the three tabbed sides on the left as shown in pic 3, it looks like the grey wire - which I think is the ground - goes from the uppermost tab on the left side of the tone switch to the middle tab on the left side of the pickup switch. The black wire looks like it goes from the middle tab on the left side of the tone switch to the only/middle tab on the right side of the pickup switch. This is how I wired it and it doesn't work properly. If someone knows what I did wrong and how the switches should be wired together, please help me by responding.
My tone switch and pickup switches look identical to the switches in the picture. I wired the capacitors to the tone switch as shown in the picture. When I plug the guitar in, I get some intermittent sound with a lot of buzzing.
