A while ago, I replaced the jack in my telecaster. When I put the new one in, the guitar started buzzing really loudly. It makes me think that I have a grounding problem, but I checked the solder joints and they seem to be good. The oly thing I touched was the jack. Can anyone help?

Sure. Recheck your work. You either connected the wires to the wrong terminals of the new jack, or you broke a wire or wires going elsewhere.

My money is on you having wired the jack up backwards - try changing it around and see if it stops.

I changed the wiring on the jack and it worked finally. What threw me off was that I guess the first time I did it right, but the volume knob must have been turned down, so there wasn't any sound. I guess the only way to learn is to do it wrong the first time (and maybe the second and third).

Some people say: "Get it right the first time."

I say: "Get it right ... eventually."

Thanks for getting back to us, with the results. We're happy for you.

Yeah, thanks for all the help. You guys saved me from rewiring my guitar (again).
