    Thanks bud.
    The reason I ask is that I've fitted a j-retro and since doing so my pick ups have been buzzing when I touch the poles. I figure they need grounding. So of I connect the bare wire to the shielding the problem should go. Yes?

    Yes.

    If there is a bare wire, it ALWAYS HAS to be soldered to GROUND.

    The bare wire on a "5 conductor cable" never "influences the coils".
    If you had an out-of-phase problem when both PUs are on, you would have to change the black and green wire, but bare would always have to be connected to ground.
