    Hello everyone, I made this wiring that is seen in the photo, following the diagram that also left photo, but it is not working, I only have constant noise, could someone tell me if it is okay or what I did or if there is another diagram to wire? Thank you

    Looks like your output jack is wired backwards. The tip carries the signal so it should be connected to the red wire and the sleeve is ground and should be connected to the black wire.

    Jack is wired backwards, for starters. But I don't see why you don't get anything from the pickups.

    I'd start by re-flowing every joint, some of those solder joints on the back of your volume pot do not look good. Specifically, the jack ground wire. If that does not work, I would try wiring the pickups directly to the jack and see if you get sound. If you get sound, the problem is somewhere between switch and output of volume pot.

    Also, that 5-way switch appears to have a terminal sticking out the side that is probably meant to have a wire running to ground. And you should triple-check that the wires you soldered to the switch aren't touching the outside lugs, which are supposed to be empty. Insulate those lugs with electrical tape or heat shrink to be safe.

    The key is 3 positions, probe soldering a cable from the key to the volume pot and nothing, the rest check it and isolate well, but still the same.

    I returned to put the original circuit of the guitar, and the only thing that added new were the mics, but now also with this circuit makes me the same problem, I am thinking that may be the mics, I will try to put the originals to discard that possibility.
    I leave pictures of the wiring with the original circuit.

    Well, not to leave this thread open and without end, I tell you that I could do all the wiring correctly, and the change of mics also, the only issue that I should again, is the shielding of the guitar in its entirety, since for a moment I thought that could be the subject that made me so much noise, but in the end obviously It was not.

    So, now if I'm happy with my SX Thinline :), Greetings to all and thanks for your answers !!!
