Found main problem, ground came off plug jack, and white almost off too. Also, anyone recommend copper foil in the pickup bays to cancell hum, RF, etc? Does it really work?

Well, it still hums a little, and sounds weird. Maybe i should play with the wires a little. Anyone tell me how they got there RG wired up? Those pictures all show different ways.

i used guitar cable wiring for the the new jack wiring, anyone do this? real nice wiring. Also, my pickup doesn't say dimarzio on them, is that normal? Some do on jems, etc.

Not all DiMarzios are stamped on the bobbins.
Glad you got it fixed!
All it takes is patience, looking at the diagrams and double checking your work.
