With a bought guitar, you will already have a ground wire connected to your bridge. If you made this, or have absolutely no electronics on it, you just solder a wire to your spring claw for trems. I'm not sure about hardtails, as I've never had to solder on to one, but by watching builds I would say you put the string through one of the mounting holes.

I assume you mean the bridge grounding wire?
Two ways you can do this with a tele:
1) If your pickup has a metal plate on the bottom, and has a wire connecting this plate to one of the pickup's eyelets, you don't need to worry about adding another ground wire.
2) Otherwise, you run an extra wire from the back of the volume pot to were the bridge will be. You strip off about an inch of insulation and let the bridge then press this inch of bare wire against the body.
