I'm half chuckling and wondering how serious these last couple of posts are. I'd like to think they are humorous, but I'm half afraid they are supposed to be serious.
Now now ... don't keep all inside like that, it's not good for you.
I wasn't kidding. I'm not saying I'm some magic freak of nature and can bend spoons and ish just that everyone is different. Some people rust strings in one set, some think cilantro tastes like dish soap and others don't.
Ah now, I'm happy with all of this. My strings look just as shiny after six months as when I put them on - I clearly have non-acidic sweat. But the stuff about wedding rings and fillings? Nah, those are magic claims. There is no science behind those.
That's a bit far fetched, I agree.
I didn't believe it either when she told me about it, but her watches go on forever now ... well, it's been 2 years and I haven't replaced one battery.
How do you explain that ?
You're right, it must be magic
I am not saying magic at all. There must be an explanation somehow, no ?
I'm far from satisfied that there is a phenomenon to explain.
Look, I'm going to apologise - I'm being a twat. This isn't my style, and I plead the splitting headache I have right now from an ear infection.
Forget about it then.
I shielded the cavities in my SG Junior. It did help quite a bit with the P-90, but it's still sensitive to body placement relative to the amp in terms of feedback etc
The battery in my Casio
is rated for 6........ I just replaced it 18 days ago
Yup Don, don't wanna get the sparks flying
Do you mean that you are thinking about cutting a new cavity cover from brass? That would work but it would add quite a bit of weight to your instrument. If you don't mind the weight at least it's at the right end and it provides shielding. Better than filling the cavity with buckshot to balance a neck-heavy guitar
They sell very thin gauge sheet brass (and copper) in some craft stores here. I've seen some that is almost foil thin. It's also available online.
If you're willing to put in the time to form it into shape, it would work great and add very little weight. But, the copper tape is probably easier to use.
Or you could mill a thick-ass one if you want the ballast ...
