I've got a few questions that I believe if answered, can save me time and money instead of going to a luthier/shop.
I'm trying to put together a 1 humbucker 1 volume guitar. It's my first attempt at wiring, and I thought that I should start on something simple like this as opposed to complex multiple pickup configurations. Anyway, I've provided a diagram with numbers and arrows below and here are my questions...
1. Does the ground symbol marked with the number '4', get soldered to the bridge/tremolo claw? If not, which numbered symbol does?
2. Why is ground symbol number '4' lighter and contains white lines in it compared to the other numbered symbols? Does this mean something?
3. Do I solder ground symbols '1', '2' and '3' ? to the bottom of the volume pot? If not, where?
4. I got the pickup with the green, red, white, bare and black wires only. Can someone tell me the name of the wire with the red arrow and the one with the blue arrow, unless the one with the blue arrow is just the black wire that came with the pickup.
If someone can answer any or all of these question, I'll be very grateful.
Sorry to bother you again unklmickey, you've been a lifesaver.
I've updated the diagram from above, and need you to confirm if it's correct just to make sure before I proceed.
Lastly, I asked which wire to use incase there was specific types for each joint etc. So basically, I can use either the insulated pickup wire or ground wire that comes with the kit for the middle lug and string ground, it doesn't matter?
Thanks a lot ! Much appreciated.
