    I debated whether this should go in the miscellaneous forum. Does anyone know of a source for buying carbon-based (or other) conductive paint for lining the control cavity in a bass? I've used copper tape and find it tough to do a really neat job with it. Thanks.

    I use carbon paint and silver paint for applications at work and carbon paint would work fine for that application but it is kinda messy. Perhaps you could do the majority of the work with tape and finish up with the carbon (or DAC as it's sometimes called). The source I get mine from is an electron microscopy supplier at www.tedpella.com.
