i have a ibanez v from 1985 and i was fixing it now and i noticed the silver color wire (thin piece of metal, no covering) sodered to the claw wasn't attached to anything in the electronics parts, and i was wondering what it does and where it needs to br sodered,

and i want to screw the neck on but i don't have a back-plate, should i buy 1 or it doesn't matter

thanx

the wire soldered to the claw is a ground wire - it stops it humming so bad


As for the neck, you don't NEED one, but it'll look ****ing ugly without one.

If nothing else you could paint where the neck-plate should be and use nice looking screws, just an idea

I wouldnt say that you dont need a neck plate, it acts as a washer and also a shimmer in order to make your neck tighter and full contact with the body. If you dont use it, there's a probability that your screw will go too far inside the neck's thread and ruining it. Remember, the neck and body's thread is bare wood, if you crack it, dont cry. You could at least put a rubber/plastic washer just to be safe.

As for the wire piece, anything from the claw should be soldered to the back of the volume pot for grounding purposes.
