Hi Ben. Thanks for returning the Elysiums, and thanks for the wiring sketches. This is what I’ve done….
I followed your advice about wiring the pickups direct to the output. I did it with my original p/us, as I had refitted them. I noticed a difference. When the Elysiums arrived, I fitted them, wired them direct, and noticed a difference.
I purchased some new pots, new capacitor and new switches, and have just finished wiring it all together. And boy oh boy do they sound good. I don’t know what it was that was draining the tone from them, but now they sound bloody superb. Articulate, bright and responsive. And with a bit of drive from my Hughes And Kettner, they make me wanna rock. Me, at my age…..! Each pickup sounds great, but putting them both on together seems to add a new something….. not just the sum of the parts.
Thanks again for your time spent helping me on this. I haven’t attempted the mini switch options yet….. will do later.
