    Hi all

    I've got a 2020 Mexican Player Tele that I put a neck humbucker on and now have returned to stock but am puzzled by this green wire which I've left taped off.

    I'm guessing its something to do with reversing polarity/phase/engaging cloaking device etc, so what should it be be soldered to or should I just leave it dangling, of course I should have taken pictures when I took the neck PU off...

    It's a separate ground for the cover on the pickup. Solder it to the back of the pots where your other grounds are.

    Yep, mine has it, too. Makes modding to the 4 way switch easier.
