just got a barden bridge and fralin pickups installed on my stock MIM tele today. they sound GREAT!! but what the hell is going on, my tele howls and feedsback like CRAZY whenever I use any gain at all... i'm talking tube screamer level gain, nothing crazy. Tried going straight to amp... same thing.... howl and feedback. the curious thing is that almost exactly 9 on the volume knob, I don't get feedback (mostly). Tried talking to the tech who installed it... he probably thinks i'm crazy and insists its just characteristic tele feedback... i just want to make sure from a third party source. I also tried pushing the pickup down all the way to the bridge... helped a little but not much. they aren't high output pickups (i think 3 or 5% overwounds). maybe bad pots?? bad shielding? crappy wiring job?? if it is a natural side effect of the 3 saddle bridge (which i suspect plays a role), then what can I do to control it?? behringer feedback destroyer??? any noisegate?? a graphic EQ to kill some high frequencies?? school me on killing feedback.
