    Hi, I have an older acousticaster that has a buzzing issue. I oppenned the preamp and there is a loose wire (yellow) comming off the shield. Any idea where this should be connected? See pictures... Thanks

      It's difficult to tell from the picture, but that wire doesn't appear to be part of the original circuit. It looks like the wire was added so that the preamp ground could be tied to the preamp cover for additional shielding. If that was the case, the wire would be redundant.

      Does the hum diminish or change if the output jack is touched?

        Thanks for the reply, that makes sense. I think that the wire might have been touching components on the preamp, when I removed the cover it was not under it, it was floating around. I just purchased the guitar... I removed the wire and the buzzing seems to have disappeared. Thanks again.
