Ground For Thunderbird

    Where does the ground wire go to on the Epiphone Thunderbird since the bridge is for all intents and purposes up on stilts? Does it connect to one of the three metal inserts that the bridge is screwed in to? And finally, if all these parts are painted then does the ground even go anywhere?
  2. Big time necro, but I'm wondering the same thing. I haven't found any conclusive info yet on how ETB is wired; looking in the cavity, it appears that the ground wire has to be going to at least one of the ferrules, but I'm not certain about that. How is this thing grounded?
