Just wanted to be clear on how the grounding on a Strat works so I traced the ground path in green. You can see the black wire that comes into the trem cavity and is soldered to the trem claw. The other end of that wire is soldered onto the back of the volume pot and all the pots are grounded together by a wire.
The springs carry the ground to the trem block, the bridge sits on top of the trem block and is screwed to it, then the strings feed through the back of the trem block and run over the bridge saddles. This is how your strings and bridge are grounded back to the wiring controls on a Strat.
ive reach a moment of clarity Jonesy i think i finally am comfortable about my task
