slagg

Recommended Posts

i noticed my epi lp only has shielding on the back cover.do i need to shield the hole control compartment.i notice a hum when i get close facing my amp?

 

That black paint in the compartment is an electrically conductive paint that acts as a shield.

I had issues with hum comming through my amp thought it was guitar... went over guitar wiring and re-soldered then took amp and guitar to tech no hum took took it home hum back....turned out is was due to crappy earthing on my house...lucky me I was a sparky and solved the house thing...if it wasn't for my guitar I would not have known about the house....tried to get some milage with the Mrs with that one :-

 

Sometimes its not as easy as it seems ](*,)
