    That diagram is for Filtertrons - these react differently to polepiece adjustment, not quite as sensitive as pickups with magnetic polepieces like Dynasonic-types...

    Howdy, New Girl! Welcome to the asylum!
    We need more ladies here just to keep things civilized.
    I have the same guitar and have no issues. Unwanted noises can come from myriad sources----lighting, HVAC, ceiling fans, etc. Could also be a wonky cable, or just a loose connection.

    i don't think the guitar should be that noisy. of course, that's the extent of my technical abilities. hope you get it resolved. the only noise should be when you want to make it!

    The thought occurs to me that it could be sloppy soldering. Perhaps a bad solder 'blob' is touching something it ain't supposed to. I know I've done that in my tinkering.

    Yeah,
    I rewired it “Hot Rod” style with just pickup selector and a master volume knob.
    I never used those nerdy other knobs anyway.
    With these TV Classic Filtertron pickups and no pointless knobs in the way it made for one tough Rock n’ Roll machine!
    I have since sold this guitar to another member here and he’s added an “off switch” which is pretty cool.

    Hey thank you, yeah , i mean they have a very low volume. compared to my other guitars I have to turn my pre gain almost to half on my Ampeg GVT52112
