Re: Wiring Diagram needed

in this diagram


I don't get about the grounding part there are multiple wires grounded to the same spot does that mean that the wires should be touching the volume pot and not touching each other?

and on soldering (this is my first time) do the wire have to touch the part it's going to connect to or is the solder going to act as a counductor to allow the current to flow through it?

Re: Wiring Diagram needed

multiple wires to the same point is just a way of connecting them all to ground,
the usual way to do it is to put a blob of solder on the volume pot and solder all the wires to that but you can just join all the wires together and put some solder on.
The main idea is that all the ground wires should be connected to the ground wire in the jack socket by just one route.

The solder is a conductor, the wire doesnt have to touch the lug.
but its always best to be neat and use the minimum of solder so its best to get the wire touching then add the solder.

The main thing to remember is heat the wire and the joint, not the solder.
If the wire isnt hot the solder wont stick to it and you can get a bad connection.

Lots of web info on how to solder, try looking on youtube for how to solder.

Re: Wiring Diagram needed

Definitely practice first. I would buy new pots to go with the pickups. This easy you can practice on the old ones.
