el pucho Posted August 20, 2006 Report Share Posted August 20, 2006 Hi, I have a few more dumb questions I have noticed when playing my Les Paul with a metal slide that I get a crackling sound from the amp, the guitar seems fine at all other times, it only crackles when I use a metal slide. I assumed this was some kind of grounding problem so I checked using a DMM and it turns out the covers on my pickups (metal cover over humbuckers) aren't connected to ground, everything else seems to be connected to ground (bridge, strings etc). So I was wondering should the covers be connected to ground, and is this likely to cure this problem, and also what is the easiest way to make the connection if it's needed.
