Thank you for that Mike, I think my jack must be a little different, it has a red and white wire already soldered on and a woven sheathing. I have soldered the red wire to the middle peg on the volume pot and the white wire to the ground, the sheathing I have just cut off. I have tried plugging in the jack and it has a lot of hum that increases in volume if I touch the pots. Maybe if I ground the sheathed wire to the top of the volume pot it would work, as you have probably guessed I am clueless when it comes to the electrics. Here is a picture of the set up, if you can spot what is wrong please let me know what you think mate.

Thank you again for your kind assistance, all the best, Chris. :)
