Question Unknwown wire ?

I just bought 2 Dimarzios for my RGA32BKF, and started pulling out the old electronics, and i found a wire that cannot be pulled out (soldered into the body ?), and that goes nowhere (not into the old battery compartment, nothing).


It's obviously the green circled wire.

What do you think ? Is it ground ?

Sorry for my english btw.

Re: Unknwown wire ?

looks like the ground wire.. should connect to the bridge. if you take the bridge off, it will come out there. Make sure you solder that back on when you rewire or you will get a terrible hum.
