Hey all. I have just finished reinstalling and requiring my guitar. Everything works fine, except that the bridge pickup hums very loudly ONLY when touching the strings, tuners, claw, and Floyd rose.

It is only the bridge pickup. Any help is very much appreciated.

I put the big bare wire coming off of the bridge humbucker amd soldered it onto the trem claw. Was this wrong? Is that what is causing it?
Most likely yes that's what's causing it.

You should connect your claw, neck and bridge pickup grounds all back to a common point, like soldered to the ground tab of your output jack. You'll need a seperate wire to connect the claw back to the common point.
