If you've still got problems when all the shieldings in place, I think you need to
add the earth wire as WildeStarr said at the start.
Many thanks Widstar and all you guys for your posts.
I have a bad Earth hum on my Gibson Studio 91.
It has had a few mods and I think the toggle has been replaced. Checked all continuity everything OK. After looking at 'alexplorers' site I identified a possible earth loop as the earth wire from the toggle is connected to the last tone contol cover before the jack connection. I'm gonna try moving it to the volume pot.
Also no wire from the tail. There was a piece of heavy duty wire attached to a volume pot but not connected to anything. And there is the hole to the tail where I can just make out the end of a piece of wire showing. So the plan is to screw a brass screw into the hole and hopefully make a decent contact with the broken wire. I'll check continuity and if all is well solder a wire across.
Well thats the theory. I'll let you know if it works. Thanks again.
