Ok, guys I can follow a wiring diagram, but I have changed out the pickups in a Squire strat with Tex Mex, and changed the 500k pots with 250's, and now the hum is worse when I touch the strings. As a matter of fact it is more a buzz than a hum. What did I do wront???
Thanks for the welcome, I have checked all my solder joints, and all seem to be solid. I also failed to mention that I changed the wire size to match the size on the pups. (20) I may have used the wrong wire, but I don't see how. Before all these mods, there was little if any buzz or hum to this guitar. I used electronic solder, so this doesn't make sense to me.
It doesn't look like it to me, but I am willing to try anything. The sound out of the amp is quiet till I touch the strings, then noise from you know where. I will look again, and will try changing that, that is easy enough. bignoot
Ok, you guys, I did a silly thing. I did put the wrong wire on the output jack, and I had to go to the Fender site to get one that you could read. While I was in there I changed the cap to a .022. Boy what a difference the whole thing sounds like a real guitar. Thanks guys, you are the best. Bignoot
awesome man. like i said before, it is a mistake i have made many many times. it always confuses you at first, then you feel dumb. just be reassured, there are more out there that have made this mistake!
