messed up wiring/grounding

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by -executor-, Mar 14, 2009.

  1. I'm trying to wire my bass with just a volume and tone, for a single pickup. I wired it using the p bass diagram on the seymour duncan site. On another site I read that I should then connect the outside casing of the two pots with a wire to ground them. When I make this connection, the sound cuts out completely.

    Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
  2. I actually had the ground wire that goes to the jack coming from the tone pot.

    I moved it, now the sound works.
