Earthing Question


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i'm new to posting but have been surfing here for a while.

I have a question, i'm planning to build a lap steel type guitar with a single coil pickup, the problem is that i might not use a metal bridge, in my experience of guitar electronics the earth wire is soldered to the bridge.

My question is will i be able to get away with not using a metal bridge and still have the guitar earthed?

Thanks in advance guys :D

or you can use an active pickup

I swear, Wes, you're obsessed with those things... if you're using a bridge that might not conduct the ground signal to the strings, though, active pickups are probably your best shot.
