    I have had trouble with humming in one of my guitars for a while and now I figured why. The goddamn noiseless springs... should have drawn that conclusion earlier :nuts: Anyway, without having to scrape off the noiseless coating, is there any other way to get the grounding done?

    Hi all, my RGD has always had a bit of an issue with grounding as it has always buzzed except for when touching the bridge, knob, switch or strings and since installing a Dimarzio Evolution in it, this issue has become more present, picking up even more interference on both pickups. The green...

    For my RG2228 project I have to insert the new posts which when inserted will trap a ground wire in the hole. So I wanted to grab a tough wire such as those normally as used on as ground bare wire. Basically I'm worried that as I insert a copper wire it will snap and I'll be left having to yank...

    Hey folks - I noticed something in my EMG 57/66 setup on the Dark Mistress (Schecter Hellraiser Solo 6) - when the switch is on the opposite pickup, I can still hear the other pickup if I crank the volume pots. It's not loud, but it's there. The wiring all seems to be in order. I thought at...

    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...

    Hey guys! I'm working on an Epiphone '84 Explorer project guitar and just installed the pickups. I checked out Youtube vids and searched this site to learn how to install a ground wire. Most people are saying that the bridge post insert needs to be removed, then solder the wire to that, then run...

    I am totally ripping my hair out on this one. Now usually I am pretty good at wiring up guitars, but this one's outsmarted me. I picked up a project semi hollow body guitar and finished it up a couple days ago. Strung it up and I am getting tons of noise & hum. It quiets down when I touch any of...

    Alright guys, was hoping for a bit of feedback on this. I've been working on a bass for a friend, and after a lot of fairly involved work - it was a body transplant that nothing lined up on, neck, bridge, pickups etc that ended up requiring a lot of dowelling, filling and routing - and getting...

    Hey guys, I've got an issue with my RG7321 that I just can't seem to solve. Basically, I'm getting a lot of hum whenever I'm not touching the strings. Put my hand on the strings - the problem goes away. My first thought was that the strings / bridge aren't properly grounded, but... they are. I...

    The wires coming from the ol pots to the toggle need to be grounded on the toggle??

    So I ordered a calibrated set of Bare Knuckle painkillers (from nick) and they should be here soon. I'm putting them into my jackson slsmg, the old wiring was going bad (scratchy pots, loose ground, etc..) and I just decided I would replace the whole shebang. I emailed tim about what parts he...

    I am thinking about making an ebony bridge with a bone saddle (similar to an archtop bridge) for my current electric guitar build. Do you think it would be necessary to ground the bridge/strings?
