Hi. So I've been trying to get this soldering to work on my Super Strat (that I made in school). I've used about 5 diagrams so far. I'm using Seymour Duncan pickups, a 3-way import blade switch and to B500K potentiometers. I've used bell wire with most of the soldering, and my pickup wires are a bit short so I had to solder some extra wires onto them. The problem is, the pickups work, but there's a buzzing sound, so I think it's a grounding issue (cavities not shielded since I have slug tape, and I'm not sure if it works. Some of the wirings from wire-to-wire are not taped, so that might be something too. I have pictures (not very high quality) if anybody needs any. Any answers/help/tips will be taken.
If these are single coils, they will hum...in some environments more than others. You should use shrink wrap or tape to seal the wire-to-wire connections so they don't touch anything they aren't supposed to. Make sure any wires (green & bare) are going to ground. All pots should be grounded to each other, and there is a ground wire coming from the bridge.
Mincer by grounding the pots to eachother do you mean connect them to eachother from the top (not the lugs)
Yes, from the top, not the lugs.
use shrink wrap over the connections where you lengthened the wire
