  1. I got a Schecter Hellraiser this week and no hum at all...so, it's the wiring in this LP. I think the bridge wire may have come undone, although, it's still tight when I pull on it. How do I reconnect the bridge wire to the bridge. I have no idea how to remove that part of the bridge out of the guitar.
  2. I have that ground connected to the neck volume pot. Should I switch it over the tone pot to see if it helps, or would it cause no change?
  3. Where exactly would I connect to the input switch at and where at on the neck tone pot?
  4. Update: I'm only get hum and static when I turn my neck tone pot. If I turn it down all the way there's no hum or buzz, but if I turn it up the buzz and static return. I checked my two solders on it and they seem good. I have a cap soldered to it and the bridge ground. Any ideas?
  5. I took the guitar and amp to another house the the buzz was 80 to 90% less. I had a small buzz, but my gain, treble, and volume were on 10, and the master volume on 4. When I touched metal on the guitar the buzz stopped at the other house, too... I assume the problem is this house and not the guitar, being the buzz was 80 to 90% lower at the other house... My next question... Is it safe to play in this house if the house has a grounding issue?
  6. Volume on 10, gain on 10, master volume on 4, 3 foot away... I'll try another house soon and let ya know.
  7. I don't know... I changed everything out as soon as I got it. But the amp has a pretty loud buzz too with the lead plugged in, and the amp is brand new.
  8. I tested all my grounds, in the guitar, with an ohm meter and they were .001. BUT I tested the wall outlets, of this house, and this is what I got (picture below). I believe the 53.4 should be .001 Could this cause the buzz and is it safe to play the guitar in this house? When I touch the strings the buzz leaves.
  9. Sorry for the double post... If there was a delete button I would have deleted the double posting. I used this diagram they sent me (yellow is white wire):
  10. I tried the wire to jack and the humming stopped when the other end touched the cap ends of the volume pots. I resoldered them and nothing... I tried soldering a wire from the jack to the volume pot and lost treble and middle position on the toggle switch, but kept rhythm... I tugged on the bridge ground wire and it seems firmly connected... I'm stuck...

  12. I connected a wire to my bridge and touched it to the pots and still the hum. I'll try the wire/jack thing.
  13. I just installed a BCS wiring set of pots, caps, and switch, along with Slash Alnico Pro II humbucker. I'm getting a bit of a hum and wondering if it's normal or a grounding issue. I tested my grounds with an ohm meter. It started at 00.1 or 0.02 and settled on 00.0. My pots are grounded together and I have the bridge ground connected to the neck tone. Please, listen to the hum on this Youtube video I made - its less than a minute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsyX5J9W77Y
