Hey folks,

So I've just shielded the electronics cavity of my Jackson DKMGT electric guitar, as well as the pickup cavity, with copper tape. The pickup combo is a Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 (neck) & Seymour Duncan TB-12 Screamin' Demon (bridge). Basically I'm trying to create a Faraday's cage.

The first part of this video explains what I'm trying to do:

After setting up everything, I've noticed my guitar feedback is still noisier than ever. I've tested this with different cables, as well as different guitar amps (Epiphone Valve Special, Mesa Recto Single/Dual, Peavey 6505+, Soldano SLO-100). There is absolutely zero difference from when there wasn't any copper tape.

The ground wire is soldered onto my tone pot, and also soldered to a metal strip screwed onto the guitar wood (which is circled below). This is also done in my pickup cavity. Should that ground wire be connected elsewhere?


Here's the wiring diagram:

your getting feedback or static and hum? because if its feedback it has less to do with sheilding and more to do with how close you are to the amp and how big the room is and all that.
