Need HELP. Wiring a CBG with real strat pickups

got a few questions and needing help concerning wiring a CBG with some old pickups i took out of my squier electric guitar. Just not sure whats the correct wiring procedure and how to ground out the wires so the sound is clean with no buzz. If anyone could help me and give some sort of direction, it would be appreciated. thanks

This one is for a single pickup, if you use a wooden bridge, just connect the ground to the strings.
