    Ok so this is my first time so be gentle. So i wire up my pickup leads and go to hook the pots up and the wire i have has another ( ground? ) wire inside. I bought them from a guitar site for this reason. So... Do i need single wire or is this fine?

    Sheilded wire. The outside is the ground.

    Shield and ground wires together. To ground.
