mugma Posted July 11, 2006 Report Share Posted July 11, 2006 (edited) Hi, I've just spent a stressful few days fixing up the insides of my guitar and replacing the pickups. I've got it all back together and it's all good apart (despite my shoddy soldering) from the most annoying hum! I think I've isolated this problem. Although my guitar did have a ground wire to bridge when I bought it (and still does) I don't think this is actually doing anything? The reason being my bridge and the studs seem to be painted black. Now, it was a cheapie but I wouldn't have thought any guitar maker would really be this stupid. Can anyone give me advice on how to fix this to eliminate my hum? I understand the strings need to be grounded. Would I need to get a new bridge that has not been painted, or can you offer another solution? I would apprectiate your help. Thanks, Dave. ps. forgot to mention my bridge is a tune-o-matic Edited July 11, 2006 by mugma Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
