Ah, but sometimes "ground" and "THE ground" are not
synonymous and current takes the shortest route, which
might just be from one hand to the other or from your
lips to your fingers... While rubber-soled footwear is
certainly not a BAD idea, it's not a substitute for
properly-grounded equipment.


PS: (I'm a hypocrite; neither my Gibson Ranger nor my
Sunn 200S are grounded, and I've gotten jolts from
both and still use 'em.)
