1: Does grounding needs to be connected to the bridge? Can't i just solder the ground wire to a screw screwed in the cavity?

Also, some wiring diagrams didn't even featured a ground connection to the bridge, such as this, while this one features one. What differences does it makes?

2: Do i really need to shield? I have one humbucker, and another ''humbucker'' wich is just two reverse wound singlecoils wired a one humbucker. Individual volume pots, 3 way tele switch.

yes you have to conect the ground wire to the bridge, or you will ge massive feedback.

No you don't have to sheld the cavitys, but it deff helps with hum.

Yes the bridge, think about it like this, the ground would go to the bridge, then through the stings and to your fingers and your body is one big a$$ grounding point so unless you can find some other way of grounding the guitar to yourself the bridge is the best option.

Discrepancy: While at 110 KIAS and 35 deg AOB with full right pedal, trims would not keep helicopter in correct Outer roll loop.
