Ok, I just picked up a used set of Seymour Duncan '59 pups.
Do I have to solder the outer mesh cladding to the ground , or can it just be pushed out of the way to solder only the wires? The chap I got them from only soldered the wires. Where I work, we ground the cladding as a drain.

I know there is wiring drawings on the forum, but has anyone ever grounded the mesh cladding?

The pups are 2 wire. Looking at them again I see the ground wire is solder to the mesh cladding. I changed the pups yesterday.........what a difference!!!!!
