Shield those cavities! It'll buzz like a sonuvabitch if you dont.

That just means theres nothing for it to pick up in the immediate area. Take it somewhere with a bunch of flourescent lights.

Shielding is the right idea, you can get a can of the shielding paint from StewMac for fairly cheap, and getting it in all right places quickly is a breeze.

That guitar looks pretty nice A 570 neck is a good choice, but a little color wouldn't hurt it.

Shield all pickup cavities, not just the middle... Youre already there, paint in hand, why skimp?
