I switched the EMGs in my LTD to DMZs, but I have a couple issues. First, all I got was hiss, so I stupidly cut the jumper wire on the 3-way, which I pointed to with a screw driver. I'm hoping that's the only thing wrong there, but I took another close up if anyone can tell me what's wrong there.

Second, I'm getting a lot of hiss through my amp that I usually don't get. The picture of the tremolo claw shows where i think I'm supposed to ground it, but I don't know where to send a ground wire. The picture of the pot also shows where I grounded the pickups, put the little loop won't bend back so I grounded to the pot then sent a wire from the loop to where I grounded. I mainly get hiss in the bridge position, only normal hiss from the neck.
