    I just bought Dimarzio DP250 Area P pickups and each pickup has a grey wire. I put them to the back of the pot, but there's a noise then i take my hand off the strings and output is weak.
    Please help!

  8. Via email from DiMarzio Tech = "Grey is a ground wire. It should be soldered to the back of a control."
  9. You have a grounding problem. This is not something that is related to pickups.
