Does one of these exist anywhere online?  I can't seem to find one.  I'm about to tear mine apart and see if I can't sort out the grounding/noisy pot issues.  I suppose I'll have to draw my own.

So is the idea behind this pickup arrangement to provide RWRP and still the single coil sound ?
Makes me think of this one by Curtis Novak.  :)

If the XII pickups are supposed to cancel hum why are mine so buzzy?  It's actually noisier then one of my JMs but all the wiring looks perfect.  I couldn't find a single joint that look as though it had been tocuhed and I'm not sure the pickgurad had even made it off this guitar more then once or twice.  So anyway, I wonder why the pickguard shield isn't grounded at all.  That's the only thing I could find that seemed to help slightly.  I stuck a wire under the bridge and ran that along the body so when I put it back together it would touch.

Interesting note...  one of the wires coming off the bobbin to the terminal had been shellac'd (or whatever the material is) into the screw hole so that touching the screw made all kinds of buzzing noise.  Just like touching the hot lead with your finger.

Jay,
    I got a XII in for repair and I was SHOCKED to learn that these pickups are NOT RWRP.  Not each half like a P-bass, nor across neck to bridge.  This is SO odd b/c they had been doing such stuff almost a decade prior in other guitars.
