I'm rebuilding an old samick i bought a while back, and while i have it in pieces i was thinking about doing shellac potting, i read the thread about it and it seems like a good idea, but i was wondering if it works for single coils, because it only shows him doing humbuckers. will it help at all?
Yes. This is done to reduce microphonics, so it should work (and help) on any passive pickup. Assuming it isn't already well potted, that is.
