My SE Custom recenty developed a fault with the 3-way blade switch, so having bought a replacement, I also bought new CTS pots to replace the stock ones.

I have a set of Seymour Duncans (Custom + Jazz) and followed the wiring diagram from their website. All is good with the humbuckers however my issue lies when I pull the tone pot to split the coils in that there is a lot of noise even with the switch in the middle position. I do still get that spanky tone, so the coils are split as thet should be, but the noise is not at an acceptable level.

Can anyone please help?

Sure could use a photo of the cavity. I'm guessing you had the splits working before the re-wire and they worked fine. If so, and the wiring is put back the same way, then my guess is a cold solder joint. Resolder the wires and see what happens.
