you need to have electrical connection between ground and each shield, otherwise it's not going to shunt noise to ground. Pickup cavities are painted separately, so wires must keep the connection between them.

Re: J Custom pickup cavity detail

I have a J Custom 8560 also had the same model years ago and the True Velvet pups are noisy becaue they are true single coil and not modern hum cancelling design and the neck pup was noisy so I bought stew mac copper sheilding foil wrapped it around my single coils and it made a huge difference. Love the sound of the pups but being a true vintage design the are noisy
