Did you solder the wires to your plug well?
Did you place the pickup as in the manual?
Did you connect it to the preamp?

Usually the pickups for acoustic guitar need preamps to work with guitar amplifiers because the signal they produce is low.

Guitar pickup wiring diagrams

That guitar features two single coil pickups when stock. If, however, you or someone else installed a 4 conductor humbucker in the neck and you want to access other tonal options, check out the Seymour Duncan web site- they have tons of easy to understand diagrams- you just need the soldering skills to make use of them!
Make your selections on this page and good luck!

Wiring diagram shadow sh661

After waiting for a reply from Shadow electronics for over 2 months, I tracked down a source for information on how to wire a Shadow SH661 twinbucker. Robert from replied within one day with some info (He worked for Shadow electronics until 1999). He said that the green wire is + (hot) and the yellow wire is - (ground) and the two other wires are wired together for full humbucking mode. If you want to wire them with a series/parallel switch go to www.guitarelectronics for more info on how to wire it. Shadow electronics customer support absolutely sucks ! With every other single major pickup manufacturer providing easy access to all of their pickup models wiring diagrams, Shadow doesn't and it's inexcusable. I won't ever be buying another one of their products for this reason and won't recommend them to anyone either !

Need adiagram for replacing 3 wire factory humbuckers with 4 wire seymour duncans


These are for the seymour duncan JB pickup which uses an extra switch for a coil tap. If you tie the leads of the switch you can avoid using it in which it would become a normal humbucker.3_8_2013_7_29_41_pm.jpg

Hi, my rare earth humbucker pickup has always worked fine but all of a sudden i get very quiet volume on both my maudio fast track ultra and my amp (orange cr35) amp has to be on overdrive to hear it...

Most likely problem is failing battery. Note that batteries have a habit of recovering when idle for a bit. Leaving guitar cable plugged in drains the battery as the presence of the cable is what turns on the preamp.

How to add a tone control to a Rare Earth humbucking acoustic pickup?

here is a diagram on how to add a tone control to humbuckers.

for your set up, all u have to do is to do is wire the positive parallel form the pick-up or volume knob into the middle lead of the pot, wire the negative parallel to the casing of the pot, and put a .022- .033 ohm capacitor from the casing to the pot lead on the right, when viewed from the bottom. wiring parallel means "tapping into" the circuit, not rerouuting the circuit.
