    I'm putting the "Victor Wooten" combo into a bass soon - I'm assuming I should NOT connect the bridge ground wire?

    EMG recommends never grounding to the bridge, regardless of preamp used.

    You don't need the ground wire. My bass with EMGs didn't even have a ground hole drilled.

    Thanks for the reassurance, all! I'll go with EMG on this one and leave it ungrounded. It's a nice side benefit of having them.
