Not sure I would recommend removing anything else, it looks like he just needs to resolder the ground and the output jack, and then that one white wire needs to go somewhere?Glen C wrote:Hard to tell from your picture but I'll take a stab - can't guarantee though...
Remove the white wire that is running from the 5 way to the volume pot loose at the volume pot and move it to the center post on the tone pot
Sounds good to me!Glen C wrote:The unattached end of the white wire on the volume pot should be attached to pin 4/5 of the 5 way switch.
Yup.Glen C wrote:The black wire grounds the tremolo -attach it there
The yellow wire goes to the output jack - the center wire is the signal and the bare shield wire is the ground.
Neither. The worst thing is you get silence. Or you could get a thin, out of phase sound... The voltage from pickups is measured in millivolts, not enough juice to damage you, the fuse, or any components in the guitar or amp.lostboy wrote:What's the worst that could happen if I wire it up wrong? Electric shock or just pop a fuse?
I think you're probably just looking at worn out pots and a worn out switch.lostboy wrote:...I've had some sound through the amp in clean and overdrive but the guitar volume button is a bit dodgy, a slight knock and the sound stops, knock it again and it works.

They've got wiring diagrams too.
Again, you could probably get away with just spraying the pots and switch with electronics contact cleaner, but if it's a guitar you plan to keep, I recommend that you upgrade the parts.
Hope this helps, good luck!
