The other night I took apart my tokai super edition strat (mid 80's), to fix one of the pickup springs, did that - now my tone pot hasn't been working for a while now so i had a look and saw that there was a wire coming off the top that wasn't going anywhere, and i can't figure out where it should be going, could you help?

Thanks in advance!
One of the ends is attached to the top of the tone pot - should the loose end be attached to something on the volume pot, cause if it wasn't there wouldn't be anything joining the tone pot to anything? (sory for the noobishness)
