Im taking out the EMG pickups in my Schecter C1 Hellraiser, and installing Seymour Duncan JB and '59 pickups. Unfortunately, there isn't a ground wire installed in the guitar...
Is it necessary to have one? Are there any other options?
Thanks for your help!
It's necessary as you're putting in passive pups. It's not difficult to wire, though, and should be supplied with the pickups.

Guitars: Ibanez SV5470F, Ibanez Xpt700, Fender MIM Standard Stratocaster ('04-'05), Jackson Ps-2
Ashton AG200,
Amps: ENGL E530, Bugera 6262-212,
FX: TC Electronics G-major 2, Behringer EQ700, Morley Volume / Wah
You can wire your own ground... also, the EMG quik-connect wire contains the ground wire for the pickups..

I should clarify... there is a ground wire on the pickups, but theres no ground wire connected to the bridge through the body of the guitar... (and the body isn't chambered so i can't get to it...
Its a string-thru body, and there are little metal pieces holding the strings in... Would running a wire to that, which would connect to the strings and connect to the bridge, be suitable?
