Get out your DMM, and let's explore the simple ways to ground Strats, Teles, and Les Pauls. The good news is, there is no such thing as overgrounding.

Hello, and welcome back to Mod Garage. Today we'll take a deeper look into grounding passive guitars—and basses, of course. This subject causes a lot of confusion and endless (mostly obsolete) discussions. There's no guitar forum without at least one escalating thread about grounding. Often the golden rules of grounding in active circuitry are simply transferred to passive circuits and declared to be the only truth. You can find discussions about star-grounding where the forumites have a real go at each other about the best way and materials to do it, etc.

We're getting close to the end of our journey. We've aged most of the metal parts on our project guitar, so now let's take care of the output jack, knobs, back plate, and pickguard.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month, we'll continue with the aging process of our Harley Benton DC-Junior project guitar (which is a copy of a 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cut), taking a closer look at the pickguard while aging the rest of the hardware discussed in the last part of this series ["DIY Relic'ing: Harley Benton DC-Junior Electronics"]. If you need a refresher on our aging process for hardware, refer back to "DIY Relic'ing: Break the Shine" for guidance. You can see the parts we'll be discussing today in their "finished" form, aka relic'd, in Photo 1.
