My old S1 could use a touch-up coat of conductive silver paint in the control cavity. Checking this out on the Web has proven that I don't know what I am doing and need help. What kind and where to buy it are the two main concerns. I have found some for $18 a 15g bottle for mounting specimens - hmmm . . . I have little idea if this is what I want, or if I am way off base. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, that was a 'durr' moment. A simple search of the club site found what I was looking for in minutes. It is even cheaper than I expected - @ $28.50 for 1/2 pint, "enough for several guitars" - cool!,_pickups/Supplies:_Shielding/Conductive_Shielding_Paint.html

Yes, when I read your first post I was thinking that there had been a previous thread on shielding. It might be informative to know if your "touch up" to the shielding has a significant effect.

Poor Nigel,
1/2 pint is a HUGE ammount. Or you could go to American Gaming & Electronics (AG&E) website. They sell small bottles like the old Testors model paint size, perfect if you only need to do some lite touchup. I used it on my '81 Distillate.
