you could do that but your battery will go dead awfully quick unless you put a switch on there to disconnect the battery from the circuit.

uhhm... the same way you'd ground a strat bridge on a strat perhaps?

sooo insted of using a single stereo jack could i use 2 stereo jacks one for stereo out put and the other stereo jack purely to complete the battery circut i.e. seperate channel for each battery ( i will have to in my wiring setup.

the only strat/s i own and have used have all been the trem style bridge and they have been grounded to the trem claw and then the output jack ground / sleve

You could put the battery on a toggle switch insted of using a stereo jack. Just make sure you turn the switch off when you're not playing or it will run the battery dead.

If you're using active pickups the bridge doesn't need to be grounded anyway. If you're not using active pickups you would ground the bridge by connecting one end of a wire to the trem claw and the other end to one of the pots.
