So I've been doing a lot of pickup swapping in the past couple weeks and yesterday i noticed a grounding issue from my guitar…only reason i did is because my decimator stopped working, but thats another problem to deal with later.
I figured that the problem was because I'm only running a bridge pickup in a 2 hum guitar, and i left the 3 way switch connected out of laziness…but tonight after i replaced the miracle man with a black winter, i removed the 3 way switch connection and wired it according to this…
and im still getting a grounding buzz.
i noticed after fiddling with the cable in the input jack, the buzz would cut in and out.. so I'm thinking the jack ground might be the problem.
i probably won't get to open it up again until the weekend, but I'm trying to get it sorted out before band practice friday night.
So do you guys think this is the result of a cold solder joint? or is there anything else i should look for?
i know nothing about wiring despite wiring up 2 guitars but have you tried wiring the pickup direct to the jack to eliminate as many things as possible? Also, I know you probably have done this already, but is your bridge grounded as well?
