well, i got some copper tape to put on the inside of my guitar.

I got emg's and finding that its internally grounded, would i conect ground to it or not?

would it have any effect at all if i put copper shielding on and not connect it to anything?

All that theory my guitar teacher tries to drill into my head just gets buried under piles of porn and I never manage to apply any of it
I don't think it would do anything if you don't ground it. You can just run a ground wire form one of your pots if you need to find a place to ground from.

Your pickup should have a ground running to the pots anyway, so just jumper up to your shielding.


Read number 4 of the following link http://www.emginc.com/downloads/wiringdiagrams/EMG-Hseries.pdf

you dont need to shield the cavities of active circuits either.

You disconnect the bridge ground wire but could still use shielding and shielding doesnt do much good unless it is grounded.
