I have searched the forums on shielding. I have a GK 1001 RB II going into an Ampeg RB 410HLF. I recently refurbished by BC RIch Eagle and just got this rig...actually just got back into playing. I know that I should use copper tape and solder the grounding wire to it under the bridge. SHould I place it elsewhere? The pickups? Where exactly...anywhere on the tone and volume controls. When I turn the volume and tone the buzz increases until I reach full tone or volume. As with everyone else, the buzz dissipates when I place my hand on the strings. I hope I didn't overlook any answers in the forum...sorry if I did. Thanks guys.
