    Often itís either an issue with the wiring to the output jack (barrel type, yes?) or your Ďhotí is brushing a ground point somewhere.

    If you have shielded the cavity check to make sure no pots lugs or connections are shorting against the copper shielding. Wire strands bridging between lugs can also do it.

    If Iím remembering correctly, this kit has the long 3-lug barrel type jack(?). The two short lugs should be your ground and Ďhotí (itís non-standard), so check youíre connecting to those lugs... and, looking at the jack with the long lug at the back and the shorter ones at the front the left is the Ďhotí and right is the ground (added image):

    If you canít find the issue please post some photos of your wiring, it usually helps to track down the problem.

    You may want to give some more specifics or add a pic. Since you're getting no pickup sound, but lots of hum, I'd check the ground connections first. Start at the jack and work your way back to the volume pot. You may find something disconnected. The ohm meter on a cheap multimeter is very helpful for this...
