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  ?

think i,ve found the link to your pup,black wire from pup to 1st pot,wil be shielded wire ,at connection there will be 2 wires ,outer sheath is earth

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

 well martin,firstly your pup does have an earth,i can,t load the amazon page you linked,but the pup will have an active and a negative[earth] if you can tell me the colours of the wires from the pup i may be able to suggest  which is earth,also,lining your pup parrallel to the strings will probably not be all that good for sound,middle string will swamp everything i feel,do you have any particular  reason for doing it this way?more info and guys like ted will help you for sure,and if i can i will,cheers

Thanks for the info, & yes merry Christmas to you! So I have a pre wired pup with vol & tone control, as I will be building a 3 string, I want the pup to be placed parallel with the strings, that would mean the middle string will have 6 bumps & the remaining 2  no direct contact, so to compensate this I thought add a piezo. As you can see the electro part is totally new for me, of course I will run some tests before I build it all in but some advice can save some probs, so , sorry , one more silly question, with the pre-wired pup how do I set up the earth, cos there is no earth wires on this set up.Thanks, Martin.

Hi David , Can I join up a piezo & a mag pickup parallel without any other components ? & would the mag pup always need a earth wire? <thanks,Martin.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the links, prices seem better than "Amazon", I have put in a couple of orders, the wait time is about the same, here in Europe the stuff is not like in the states waiting on the shelf. Must be patient! So I orderd a few piezos  & I was just wondering would you know if there is a quality difference, as there are many different brands?

Many thanks , Ganna check it out more  tomorrow. I had a quick look, my mouth is watering!
