I tend to get a lot of hum from my guitar. I looked at the jack and it looks like it's not grounded. Both parts of the jack are soldered together with the little white wire. Should I solder a wire from the jack to the ground of my wiring or leave it that way? The guitar is a cheap Washburn X-Series.

P.S. sorry the any error, english is not my mother tongue,
