Hi all, I’m rebuilding my 1963 Hofner Artist bass (solid body), since I stripped it down over 20 years ago I’ve had it resprayed and now I am stuck as to where the ground wire from the pickups/pots goes. As I remember it went through the body from under the scratchplate to come out under the saddle. I can’t find any holes now, what I want to know is do I have to run the wire to the saddle or can I connect it elsewhere? If it needs to go to the saddle is there an easy way to drill a hole through the body, it needs to be about 4 inches long but very small diameter. I would be very grateful for any advice. Cheers, Gary.
