Extra Ground To Pickup Selector Switch?


Recommended Posts

I recently replaced a humbucker and selector switch from the Asian to the American style.

Everything seems to be wired up correctly, selector switches and the pups work as expected.

Everything looks to be grounded properly. However, I still get significant buzz, however, if I touch my selector switch, the buzz stops.

The selector switch does have a ground going from the ground nub, to the ground solder joint on the back of the volume pot. I'm just wondering if I should also solder a wife from the body of the selector switch to the same ground point.
