Grounding A Bridge?


Recommended Posts

Asked this in my explorer build thread but realized it really belongs here....

I've got a bridge that does not require any kind of trem route. It just sits on top of the body. I know that on Floyd style bridges I've always seen a ground wire soldered onto the claw. Not having that option here, is it required that i drill a small hole that ends up under the bridge so I can have a ground wire from the control cavity to the bridge? Ultimately, I guess what I'm asking is, do all bridges need to be grounded no matter what style?

you drill it through from, or to, the post hole for a bridge like that. i must confess i often drill it to the bridge pickup cavity as its usually easier to drill to that point than the control cavity - just depends on the design


found a couple of pics (not one of mine)
