    Tested everything outside the body and seemed to work but once I screwed down control plate the Bridge PUP Volume Control no longer works? Probably pinched a wire and will have to dive in again to sort that out some other day.

    Posted the wiring diagram for anybody wanting to have a go as it does make a significant difference and produces another very useable phat sound.

    Once the Bridge Volume control has been rectified may get around to doing a sound demo video.

    I'm guessing that either one of the solder lugs on the volume pot is shorting-out to the copper foil shielding, or, the bridge pickup is shorting-out to ground somewhere when you screw down the control plate, you can fix that by putting some electrical tape on the shielding, hope that helps.

    Thanks Doc. Probably a dodgy earth wire somewhere and hopefully easy to find and fix.
