Have you got a coil tap on it? Is that what you're using for the in-between switching?

If so, swap the wires on the tag and the back of volume pot.  I think you'll find you've got the small "non-tapped" part of the pickup tapped.

If that makes sense!

Yep - neg and live swap is the one.

My Mule is in a GS-1 and my MQ in an SG-1 - both Gordon Smiths.
