Im trying to solder the three ground wires from the pickups to the back of the volume pot. I dont have time for the other grounding method so yeah im doing it this way :cool:

Anyway, Im having a hard time soldering the grounds to the back of the pot. I think I remember reading you could just use some fine grit sandpaper to rough up the back of the pot, and I will probably try that. However, what else can I do for it to stick easier? Would using that acid flux paste stuff help? thanks...

the back of your pot. or you can

Here's how you get better contact;

This is just a basic summary.
The whole process can be found on this site;

Just my thought.
I hope it works for you.
