ive just finished making my own single coil circuit containing, a master volume,master tone and a blender pot. I copied the circuit from my strat and in theory it should work....but it doesnt!

well it does, but there is alot of noise from it and when the tremolo is touched it appears to be carrying the current aswell. I have tried putting tin foil around it to no avail.help!

i'm no expert in electronics but it seems like a grounding issue. and you could possibly put some shielding tape in the cavity to reduce the hum once you've solved the problem.

since i have a strat with a vintage trem, there should be a soldered ground at the back where the springs are attached.

how does one solder a wire to the back of the tremolo, is it not just a simple joint?

is it just one single coil? maybe the hum's from the lack of a reverse-wound coil?

just a thought..
