Hi all, I have a single coil pickup from CB Gitty and am thinking maybe I don't need any volume or tone controls just wire it to the input jack and ground to the metal bridge. I'm thinking of doing it this way because I rarely use the controls on either of my Strats and would like the CBG to be as simple as possible. Am I missing something?
Not missing anything. I've found that grounding the bridge is highly optional as well.
just strait wired will work great!
yup , just wire to jack . you probably wont have to ground either .
also if it sounds staticky , reverse the way you attached the wires to the jack . (swiitch them around ) .
Well I got it wired up and it sounds fantastic! I didn't ground the bridge and no hum whatsoever. Got a little fret buzz and need to play with the intonation but I very satisfied with the pickup and don't see me using piezo's anymore.
