I have a bass with some hum that has some extremely tight pickup routes. Tape is not going to be an option, it will just get bunched up and pushed down. There is basically zero clearance from pickup to body. I am hoping to use some conductive paint but I have never used the stuff, when I have seen it done it was from Fender and didn't work since it was poorly done. This is a rather expensive bass so I am really not about to route it. Does the paint build up any kind of texture? Will it work in a zero clearance situation? Is there a local source that might carry it instead of ordering the stew-mac stuff? I have seen the homebrew method with graphite but I would probably just buy the real stuff than try to concoct my own. Has anybody used copper foil to conductive paint to solder a ground as opposed to installing a ground screw? There is a grounded brass plate under the pickups, I am assuming that connection would be sufficient to touch the conductive paint but just in case. Thanks in advance for the help.
