Thank you for the very clear explanation, the reason for the placing of the pup in line withe the string is purely as a design feature, but if you think it will not function efficiently then it will have to be as you suggested on a slant . So to earth the set up, just solder to the outside of the volume casing ?
Sorry Darryl, I'm in between Christmas dinner & trying to get the pic/link out correctly, Thanks for the feedback , ganna give the reply' s some time tomorrow, when the dust has settled! Cheers, Martin.
also martin,any wires soldered to the casing of you pots will be part of the earth circuit,at some place on a prewired setup,they will connect to the housing of the jack,[outer connection],some terminals may just go to ground and back to another terminal,but that is all part of the earthing link
