Hey guys I previously in the past bought a set of seymour duncan black winters to put in my jackson usa and the bridge pickup was like shorted out for me. Was low output and had a twangy out of phase sound. When I would switch to the neck no issues. Middle position it would return back to volume without the twang (not sure if it was running off of the neck pickup and cancelled the bridge out or whatever). I got a replacement and vala, worked perfectly fine. So I got a new guitar (I will still be making a thread about it soon) and it has passive pickups. The bridge pickup on this has now like shorted out just like I mentioned about the black winter issue I had. I checked the wiring, looked like it had never been touched aside from the factory. I resoldered everything on the switch and the volume pot (it is directly connected to the bridge pickup) and legit it still is not working! I bought this off of ebay from a very reputable seller and he has not gotten back to me about this issue and I emailed the manufacturer and called the tech department to see if I can do a swap of some sort. Is it me or is this kind of normal for pickups to just short out? I know I need to buy one of those meter things to conclude whether or not it is really shorted out, but this is a lot like the BW situation I had previously.
