I've just tried wiring up a new pickup set using Gibson 50s style wiring, and I get the reduced treble loss turning down the volume now, and the increased interactivity between the tone and master volume. Here's the thing- will the 50s wiring allow more single coil hum through? Either these new pickups are pretty sensitive to hum, or something else is afoot. They're Bootstrap 54 Vintage Pros, and every other set I've had from Ryan has been pretty quiet, but for some reason these seem more sensitive. They sound great, by the way!
