ok my 100gbp build is nearly at an end and i have put srings on it and the electrics are in but i have a HORRENDOUS buzz. now i have grounded my pickups ( the best i can which was from input jack case to bridge because i am using the neck pickup and bridge pickup from a strat copy which its pckups just has white and bare wire) now i have one volume pot in there with no capacitors or anything like that. the majority of the buzz goes away when i touch the strings. but there is no buzz on my stagg superstrat or vantage guitar no matter what i do so what can i do to rid myself of this buzz?

Its not grounded as well as you think it is. If re grounding it dosen't work try sheilding it.

Edit:Just check how well your bead of solder looks if its dull it harded to quickly and just is'nt alowing proper conduction if its shiney your fine. You said you grounded to you bridge block is this guitar a fix bridge or a Tremolo guitar.

Sheilding is appling a metalic tape or paint to the inner cavitys to your guitar. If you know what metal ducting tape is! Thats what I used and I have no hum even with the Tv or other electrical things in a room on.

I think Stewmac has some sheilding supplies.

My point is just recheck any lose wire.

If its a Tremolo attach to the claw for the springs, If it another type of bridge make sure that the ground is touching the metal on your bridge firmly.

Tremolo think Strat.
Fixed bridge think Tele.
The other fixed bridge (adjustable) type think Les Paul.

i think unherolike has the right idea - it definately sounds like a grounding issue - you have to solder the ground wire to the claw (the bit where the springs attach to the metal bit, at the end where the screws attach to the body) in the back of the body (the cut out where the tremolo springs go)
