I replaced the gretschbuckler with a Surf-90 in the bridge, and I thot I wired it just like the one I took off, but now I get a lot of crackling when I touch the guitar. I think its causing my Digitech Whammy to go whack-a-doodle when I walk off the plastic chairmat under my desk back onto the carpet.
I am thinking ground? Maybe somebody can give some tips before I pull this whole thing apart again. Should I ground to the back of the pot and not the side, like the originals?
ALSO, I got the pickups to align to the strings by reversing the mount so it was slanted to the neck. That might help somebody.
ALSO, why doesn't Gretsch put a connector in, ya know, like how you don't have to solder the mobo when you change the PSU on your desktop computer? It would cost like pennies, and make swapping pickups easier.
