Ok, I found the diagram for my strat, but theres a huuuugggeee problem.

One of the pickups (not sure whether it's the neck, or the bridge) is NOT soldered to the pickup selector. And according to the diagram I found, the pickup that was in my bridge, should be my neck. This is the one that is connected.

Problem is, I can't tell if i'm right in assuming that it IS the neck pickup, or if i have the wrong diagram. Help please?

If you need pics of my guitar to help, tell me.

the ground wire should go to either the output jack or to your bridge. where did it go before you clipped it?

<.< They're both connected.
This is like the wire that is randomly placed...it's hard to explain.
..And at least I think it's a ground wire. >_>

this is what i meant when i said:

edit: since i'm guessing it really needs to be spelled out for ya... connect your mystery ground wire coming off of your tone knob to the ground coming off the bridge which would likely be the same wire that was cut when the pickguard was removed.
