I've lost patience with my failed installation of the dimarzio areat T's. They hum... Badly and I can't figure out what's wrong. I've installed lots of pickups before and never had a problem until now. Anyway, I ran into my first problem when the instructions said you need to ground the bridge plate. They suggested running some bare wire between the bridge plate and the body with the other end going to ground. Ummm... no. Even the small amount of thin wire between the bridge and body caused the entire bridge to pivot raising the front edge off the body. No go. Ok so I'll solder the ground wire to the bottom of the bridge plate. Nope. Whatever the bridge is made of, solder won't stick to it. I even tried my 65 watt iron that I use to solder grounds on amp chassis'. Now I'm getting pissed. So i screw a funky wing nut thingy to one of the pickup adjustment screws and solder the wire to that. Great. I put everything back together and plug the unstrung guitar in to make sure the pickups work and it s HUM city. I've got continuty from the neck and bridge pickups to the volume pot and output jacks so I have no Idea where the hum could be coming from. The pickups work but I've got a ground issue I can't seem to trace. Anyone have any ideas?
