I have a HH setup with 2 tone 1 volume, started doing some tests today with the quieting the beast mod, all ive done so far is line the control cavity and so far theres a noticable difference so im going to move on and shield the other cavities.
anywho 1st question is...
looking at my pickups they have a metal plate base that you screw into (i asume its grounded into the ground wire coming out the pickup which i asume it is since theres a zero ohm reading betwen the pickup height screws and the tremelo) so when ive lined my pickup cavities do i link the shielding thru to the main body cavity thru the large cap to the ground or do i join the pickup cavity chielding to the pickups ground? which ones seems more sensible?
Ive read that covers for the humbuckers may also provide a bit of extra shielding, do i solder the covers to the base plate of the pickups? and if so do i need to swap the pole screws in the pickups to a non conducting kind? or is it ok for the poles to contact the ground through the covers?
