    Hello everyone,

    Would anyone be able to clarify the attached wiring diagram for me?

    I'm assuming GND means ground. Each pickup has the hot wire that goes to the switch and then another wire for the ground. I've wired a bunch of pickups before but I am just making sure that these grounds will need to be grounded to the back of one of the pots.

    I see on the volume knob that the 3rd terminal it shows that it needs to be grounded to the top of itself, but on the tone it just says GND on the back of the pot. Where would this be grounded?

    Thanks in advance.

    As long as everything that says Gnd is connected together somehow you're good. It doesn't really matter how or in what order you do it. Don't forget your bridge ground.

    Solder all the grounds to the back of the pots - bridge too as mentioned and run a ground wire between the pots. I usually run a ground wire through that lug on the volume to the back of the pot, solder it all and solder the other end to the back of the tone pot. The jack ground can go to the back of the tone pot as well.
