avengers63 Posted February 10 Report Share Posted February 10 I have a Gretsch brass-bodied resonator. I bought a flat humbucker from CB Getty last year. I'm just now finally getting around to putting it onto the body. All I'm gonna do is drill for the 4 screws and the hole to run the wire through, the 2 for the volume & tone pots on the lower bout, and one for the input jack on the side of the body. I'm not going to worry one bit about shielding because the whole body is brass. As I was starting to lay out everything, it hit me..... Where in the hell am I supposed to ground this thing? There's no metal bridge!!!!!!!! We ground the strings to the circut via the wire going from the metal bridge to the common ground, but there ain't no metal bridge! So what am I supposed to do? The strings ARE connected to the body through the metal trapeze tailpiece. Strings to t/p which is all metal and screwed to the body. My thought is to have a common ground attached directly to the body, as it's all metal and connected to the tailpiece. But I'm the inlay guru, not the electronics guru. please help!
