Members roul3tte_dares Posted February 14, 2010 Members Share Posted February 14, 2010 Hello all, this is my first post on your lovely site. I got the bright idea a year ago to put together a telecaster with parts bought from various websites. About a month ago I got the last few pieces and began assembling the guitar, and it started to take shape. Today was my first attempt at wiring a standard tele, and needless to say...I wouldn't be here if I didn't need the help. The diagram that lollar provided seemed like it would work fine, but the only sound that comes out of my amp is a very loud humming. It sounds like it might need a lot more shielding than it currently has (which is nothing in the body cavities). The pup selector and pots work correctly, I just can't get the humming to stop. It actually gets worse if I touch the bridge or electronics cover. Here is a picture I took of the wiring diagram: and here is a picture of the wiring I got done (Ignore the duct tape on the grounds, I grew tired of re-soldering everything and took the lazy way out): Thank you for looking, and any help would be much appreciated.
