Hi, Just Wondering. I've just been soldering my connection and had a bit of a ... Think. Does it matter if i solder all my connection ( for the grounding ) at the same place. as in, as long as i solder to the metal casing of my Push pull pot, they should all be grounded anyways...?? Right??

look at the picture..

(red blops = soldered connections)

will this be ok???

thanks,
ryan

No, Basicly The Red Bits are different points, of which i have soldered the grounds to. but they are connected together by the metal casing of the pot, that they are all soldered too... if you get me? thats ok though, becuase i had a humming noise, as soon as i touched a metal part it went.. and i didnt know where the problem is ( i know its a problem with the grounding.) and i think its because the pickups & trem is grounded at the bottem , the volume is grounded on the left red blob, and the jack is grounded to the top right blob.

^sorry, but i can't see **** on the pic.

you never have to ground the metal casing of the pot/switch itself. it is grounded through the pickguard or w/e u have. u can collect all the grounding points, wire them up to *ONE* spot, as a star grounding point, and then you can ground that part to ur output jack.

^it's just an option for you. you don't really have to. but it will avoid ground loops.

Ite, I get you, i have done electrics before, just never on a guitar. this is my first attempt, what with the pots and stuff. its basic if you think about it... if you dont think, then well it doesnt make sence lol,

yeha i see what you mean by the grounding loops, but as long as they are all grounded through the jack, it should be ok... ? thanks
