Static

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by gimmeagig, Dec 27, 2005.


  1. I have a bass that seems to load up on static electricity very easily and every time I touch the pickguard there are little sparks.It's not noticeable through my amp, but still,I'd like to get rid of that.
    Is there a good way to eliminate that problem?

    3 ways, in order of diminishing difficulty:

    1) Shielding


    2) Putting a dryer sheet under your pickguard


    3) Wiping the pickguard with a dryer sheet once in a while.
