I know pretty much nothing about wiring, but I suspect the wiring to the input jack isn't supposed to look like this, and it's probably the reason why no sound is coming from my pickups. Is the fix simply soldering the disconnected wire to the post?
Thanks.

You're probably right. You can always plug the guitar in and connect the two points- if sound comes out when doing so, then it's confirmed.

Yeah, don't know why I didn't think of doing that. Did it now, and surprise surprise, it worked. Thanks. On to some soldering then.
