Installed some livewires last night following this diagram:
I am using a stereo jack, for which I thought the wiring was different than the schematic. After reading through the forums, I found this post which suggests the same thing:
The picture is actually right, if looked at as if looking into the entrance as opposed to looking out from inside.
I have guitar plugged into mackie onyx 1620i. I have to crank the gain up 3/4 of the way to even hear guitar. I have a constant hum that is fixed by touching instrument cable, input jack, or pot knobs (didn't put plastic covers back on yet. If I touch any hot lead, the hum gets real loud (the volume I'm expecting to hear my guitar at). I get the same results from a DI box or an effects box. I am using a mono cable.
These are installed in an Ibanez Iceman ICX120. It has a bridge ground, which I have to the attached to the jack sleeve along with a ground cable from the solder pool on back of volume pot. I wasn't sure if that is the correct place for the bridge ground, of if it should go to volume pot.
I am using 100k pots and a 50V .047uF cap as recommended in schematic.
Thanks in advance.
