You deserved this, Matt.
One last thing (for now): I'm supposed to solder 8 wires (grounds) to the back of the volume pot?
or anywhere else that's grounded (you could solder them to the sleeve lug of the jack if that's easier; all the ground wires lead there anyway).

take all future wiring questions to the wiring thread in my sig. also have a look at the first page. you may find something helpful or worth trying.
