    Hey guys,

    Installing the Fishman Modern 7's in my guitar. I have had them in for a while but couldn't really fit the battery in. So I tried to cram it in and must've knocked one of the connections or something as they stopped working.

    Now I've spent the past day wiring it trying to fix it, wired exactly like the diagram said, connections all seem solid but still no output. Though when I touch the middle lug of the volume pot and the topside of the pot I get hum.

    Grounding issue?

    Last hope here before I take it to a shop, just no idea whats going on!

    Here's the diagram I'm using, it's all connected exactly the same.

    I don't know about Fishmans, but do they have a quick connect type of cable like emgs do? Maybe check if you disconnected them?

    No output could be almost anything. Any clear pictures of the wiring?

    They do I checked and re-connected one but the same problem persisted.

    I already caved and took it to a shop, I fixed the hum on the volume pot, or thought I did it jumped to the pickup selector and I gave up.

    Thanks for the responses though.
