    I have a fender jazz pick up with metal webing around the white wire. Now when I wook these up where do I conect the black wire coming off the pot to? Do I wire it to the metal webing? Thanks for the help ahead of time.

    not aware of any Fender Jazz pups with a braided ground but I'm not aware of a lot of things. Also, black is typical ground for a Fender. If there's nothing but the braid and black, black is hot and braid is ground. So black goes to vol/wherever braid goes to pot back/wherever.
