    I have a PRS 245 SE I got in a trade last year. I like everything but the pickups and the tuners, I upgraded to locking one.

    When I switched out the bridge for a Seymour Duncan JB, I noticed something weird. With the selector switch in the middle, there is a volume drop when either volume pot is at 10. But drop down just below, and the volume is louder. Have I wired something wrong, was the wiring modded before I got it, or is it a weird side effect of the JB being hotter than the stock neck pickup?

    Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Sounds like one pup is out of phase with the other.
