"David, it sounds like a bad pot or bad ground or bad solder joint. The strings don't have to be grounded using a piezo, only when using a mag pickup.  Resolder all the joints.  Make sure the 3rd lug and the back of the pot is…"

"I can check the pot. Don't (currently) use a metal tailpiece. May need to re-think that. Thanks"

Grounding issue?

Greetings. I just joined the group, and here's what I am trying to figure out...I built a CBG with a piezo pickup. I added a volume pot...followed wiring diagram from CIgar Box Nation...plugged it in and the control only works when turned up full. When dialing back, it wants to cut out all together, and when it is at the lowest, there's a 60 cycle hum. I am thinking it's a grounding issue, but I don't have a metal bridge I can run a ground wire to.Any thoughts?ThanksDavid in outer MilwaukeeSee More
