    Default Grounding in Series/split/parallel with phasing diagram

    Looking at this diagram for series/split/parallel with phase reversal:

    It appears to me that when the phase switch is flipped, the bare wire, which is the pickup baseplate/shield, will be connected to hot.

    Would this be a bad thing, and if I was doing this wiring mod, should I connect the bare wire directly to ground rather than to the switch?

    Connect the bare grounding wire directly to ground. (The collar of the DPDT switch would do.)

    Allowing the bare ground wire into the signal side of the circuit will turn the shielding into an RF aerial. D'oh!
