    Hi y'all,

    It was perfect before I touched it.
    I removed the guard, on my recently acquired 80's Schecter Strat, to check the back of the pickups. Once reassembled, it had a new hum in the bridge/mid position.

    Admittedly, I know not much about electronics. Mostly likely, what did I do?

    Thanks!

    dos it still sound like both pickups are on?

    tap on each one with a little screwdriver or something to make sure that each pickup is on when it's supposed to be.

    walterw,

    Both pickups are definitely on.
    Also, the hum is there no matter what position the push/pull tone knob is in.

    Thanks!
