Strat Wiring - Capicitor? Input Jack Ground?
Sorry, no takers on the strat page, thought I might have better luck here.
So, I bought all American Made Pots and Switch and new chrome dome pickups and am redoing my squier with it all. I have got most of the soldering done except for the two tone pots. Am curious what the deal is with the capacitor? Looks like you just solder it directly to the neck tone pot (-) and to the neck p/u tone pot's lead (+). Why is it needed and only on the neck p/u tone?
Also, I have seen multiple diagrams of the wiring and I have one wiring diagram that shows the negative for the input jack connecting to the middle p/u tone pot instead of the volume pot. Does it matter? I am paying a little more attention to this because this was the wiring diagram I got with the pickups. But this particular connection doesn't have anything to do with the pickup connections.
