Kit Posted June 4, 2007 Report Share Posted June 4, 2007 Hi all, I study physics, and so have covered magnetism, but I've a question or two about sustainers. I'm currently preparing to wire my first ever home made guitar. I've put a BareKnuckle Nailbomb in the bridge, and have bought a Fernandes FSK-101 for the neck. The guitar (an SG) is a natural finish with a clear varnish, and a custom designed mirror-backed perspex scratchplate. To go with the chromey finish of the guitar, I'd like to put a chrome/nickel coverplate over the Sustainer driver. Would this shield the strings from the field produced by the driver at all (and so reduce the drivers efficiency)? Would I also need to ground the cover, as a magnetic field moving relative to a current-carrying conducter = current? Just a question for the experts :], thanks alot...
