Twist or don't twist leads between pickup and switch/controls?
Well, whatever you prefer, but twisting them means nothing.
Just looks cleaner to me. as sjtalon sez, no benefit from doing so.
I braid the ones with three wires, usually the neck pickup.
If you feel it makes a difference, other than aesthetics, then do it.
But I'm sure we'll hear more on this one.
There are those who believe that wire twisting is a good noise reduction technique. I'm not one of those. Or is it they?
At any rate, I do twist, but it's just for wire management.
Only two wires on each p/u. Neck p/u cover appears to be grounded via the ground wire from the p/u winding.
One final unexpected question. There was no separate ground wire from the bridge plate, but the bridge p/u has a metal base plate that is grounded via the p/u ground wire and I assume electrically connected to the bridge plate via the three p/u mounting screws. Any need for a separate bridge plate ground wire if the replacement p/u is configured the same way? (I'm thinking "no.")
FYI I am replacing the stock Baja pickups/selector/S1/tone pot with different pickups, standard controls and 3-way switching.
(I'm thinking "no.")
Winner winner !!!
You're all good. I twist all wire groups (each pickup has own twist) for wire management and it keeps them just a smidge longer and easier to reuse in a future swap.
