    I am a novice but I ran into a problem. I have an Lp style guitar that I had to rewire from scratch. I have little experiance at reading diagrams so here is my question.

    I have every other wire figured out. The only thing that confuses me is where to connect the input jack wires with the 3 way toggle wires that come off the middle terminal of the toggle.

    Do I connect the grounds separatly to the bridge volume pot then connect hot toggle to the hot jack? Or do I match up the ground wire from the toggle switch to the ground on the jack wire as well as the hot wires?

    To most this seems easy and automatic so I apologize. However I want to save time and avoid trial and error.
