long story short, I bought a firebird new, it got the neck snapped off, I do autobody work so I repaired it and painted it. when I painted it I took the pickups out but I left the pots in it. wet sanded and buffed it, now when I plug it in i'm not getting any sound unless I switch the pickup control and then the only sound I get is a terrible buzz until I put my hand on the strings, I don't really want to put all new wiring in it. If anyone has some insight i would appreciate it
Look up a schematic for your specific wring configuration. You just have some wires wrong. And probably the jack.
