Let's Start with the deconstruction


Remove the 2 plate screws

Make sure and take note of two things what color your pickup wires are and what ground wires you have. in this example the bridge pickup features a yellow and black wire and the neck is white and black

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

Most important Part

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.
