i took out my crappy strat copys pickguard to paint it for fun and then i put it back in but now its not working, im not sure whats wrong i did a continuity test but i dont know what to do now, help?
#2
I don't know much about strats, but did you paint it with the pickups attatched, and the continuity turned out ok?
#3
no i spray painted it, i took the whole thing apart and i have it seemingly all the way back together but its not working
i downloaded a wiring diagram and it is wired right, and i did a continuity test between the volume pot and the output jack and it is working. there is only that wire and the ground i had to disconect so im not sure whats not working
#5
by any chance did you wire them backwards? "not insaulting but it does happens" I'm trying to think of something, i'll get back to yah in a bit after some research if someone doesn't get it before me.

i just tried unsoldering it and redoing it and it fixed it. it works now wheooo! gotta go to GC and get strings though, i had just stolen 1 from my other guitar to test it lol. thanks for help my guess is it just must have been a poor connection cuz i did it the same the second time
#7
ah that was going to be my next question, but i didn't find anything too much researching. Cept also the possiblity of a cable snap inside of the cable sleeving. "rare" but it happens. but glad to hear it's fixed.

Well what I do is I hook it up to my amp AT LOW VOLUME!! IN THE CLEAN CHANNEL then I just mess around with the wiring until I hear it working again then figure out where it is and just resolder the junction. <I don't know if it's really amp friendly though>

^ That should probably be fine, as long as there aren't any big, potentially speaker-damaging pops coming from it.
