Re: Guitar Grounding Common Misconceptions?
All good info, but at least in the thread I started I was talking only about the ground wire from a pot to the bridge/tailpiece/strings. When I said "grounding predicament" that's what I was talking about - grounding the circuit to the strings and therefore through the player. Since that's what was getting rid of the noise - touching any metal component that's part of the circuit, like the output jack, a pickup or the switch ring. Could it be a problem with one of the other "grounds" in the circuit or a bad solder joint? Maybe. I don't know yet.
