Remove the output


Next remove the output jack and remove any wires attached to the guitars wiring. Make sure once you are done to arrange the wires in a way you can remember what they are. i.e neck pickup wires together, bridge pickup wires together, and any grounds together. Install the new wiring onto the metal plate

Next, combine the "Ground Wire" coming from your guitars Bridge pickup and the "Ground Wire" coming from your guitars actual bridge and your Necks second ground to the casing casing of the volume pot. This will ground the whole guitar stopping most buzzing when touching the metal parts. Once that is done go ahead and reinstall the metal plate to the guitar.
