Hello Everyone, I am rebuilding an old Ibanez V I've had since 1987!! Here is my problem... Instead of one volume and one tone, I will be using an Alps 500/500 stacked dual-concentric knob so the volume and tone can be stacked together. I'm doing this because one the volume knob is too close to the bridge pickup and it gets in my way so i plugged it up! Anyway, it's hard to solder the grounds to the side of the concentric pot due to size issues but mostly due to plastic parts and the delicateness of the pot itself - i don't want to overheat it. I was wondering if i can send all of the grounds, from pots, pickups and switches to some sort of junction and then send a ground from the junction to the output ground terminal and then back out again to the bridge. Is this possible?? It would make my life so much easier. Here is a link to a schematic I made - how does it look?? I used modern wiring.... http://s1311.beta.ph.../photo.jpg.html Thank you, Pal
