Hey all,

Trying to finish a build tonight on an RG. I've got the bitch all wired up but no signal is coming thru. i checked the circuit and all I could find wrong was that the ground to the trem claw had come loose. Would the bad ground make the circuit refuse to work? Also the tone pot I used is rather old and I rightly don't know if it is good or not. Could that also be the problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

The tone is paralelled to the signal path, so it prolly isn't the problem. Not having the claw grounded will just make it noisier when you play. With what little you've given and with no pics, I can only assume that the signal is shorting to ground somewhere.

Is it dead silent or is there some buzz? If it's silent, it's shorting.
