Hey all, I just put a SD Antiquity Surf in the neck of my Strat. There's no other pickups currently installed, just the neck. I grounded everything just as the wiring diagram that was included showed, but I'm still having two problems. One, I get a pop every time I touch the strings, and the second is that everything seems to completely short out when the whammy bar touches the metal part of the cable at the jack. I've got to wait until tomorrow to pick up a multimeter to check the continuity of the grounds, but until then does anyone have any ideas what's causing these problems?

Thanks
