EDIT: Okay, I just realised that I need to earth the guitar, and attaching a material simply won't work. Hmm...

I get the classic 'hum' when I plug my electro-acoustic Garrison G20-CE into my amp or computer. After lots of deduction I've realised that something in the guitar isn't properly grounded properly. I can get rid of the hum simply by touching the metal jack or any metal bits on my amp.

So what materials can I use as a temporary solution to ground all the electronics and get rid of the hum? Can I wrap something like copper round the metal jack?

Any ideas guys?

make sure the two wirse are connected to the jack.

if you cant get to the wires, then you can use a metal clip. attact wire to it clip it to a string or metal, or bridge and tuck the other end into your belt.
or use an alligator clip and a little ring at the end, to tuck in, like pictured.
