Any update on how you're enjoying this Jag?
It truly is perfect. Hope it is everything you wanted it to be.

Looking at the pick of the switch plate, the wiring seams to be correct (when compared to the Jaguar's wiring schematic).
Although, you might want to take a look under the rythem circuit plate as well. Perhaps a wire got crossed/swithced there to create the out of phase sound.

If you have the out of phase sound in the middle posittion (both pick ups on) it could be that the neck pick up wires are reversed at the rythem swithc.
Normally the neck pick up goes directly to the the rythem switch and a seperate wire (the orange on on the left in the pics of the 3 way swithc plate) comes from the rythem switch system. The rythem switch just engages the neck pick up only to the upper vol. and tone wheel, when switched down the neck pick runs to 3 selector switch plate (via the above mentioned orange wire) which seams to be stock as well.

You might want to try and switch the wires coming from the neck pick up to see if this solves the out of phase sound when both pick ups are on.

Both pick ups should have a black wire each (ground) and a colored wire (hot) either yellow or white (although other colours could be possible)

Also normaly if the set is RWRP, the neck and bridge pick ups pole pieces (on the upside of the pickups) should atract to each other.
The wires should be reversed (meaning hot and ground) when you compare the bottom side of each pick up.
So there should be no out of phase sound when both pick ups are on. (Same as on the strat's 2 and 4 position)

I hope this makes some sense....

Anyway, that's an amazing Jaguar you got there.... :?
Hadn't thought to check the rhythm circuit. I'll look into that. Thanks for all the info!

It's like if the crackwhore Jag was in good condition and didn't arrive in a children's coffin
It's comments like these that make me think we need a 'like' button.
