Grounding Pickups, what wire gauge?
Hi there, long time no see.
I have been using my active jazz bass for a long time now, the only problem is that I have to lower the high and mid range so the guitar doesn't buzz. I've read other threads on this problem and it seems that my pickups are not grounded.
I plan on wiring the pickups but I was wondering what kind of wire I should use. Coming from a computer background I prefer thicker gauges but I'm wondering if that will affect my guitar's sound since it's an analog device. I like using high quality 14 gauge stranded tinned copper wire.
Would aluminum, silver, or platinum wire be better? What gauges would be the most fitting for a "bass" sound?
