I did a search query on a popular search engine, (Not Google), and got what I found to be a quite funny answer.

 Search AI: "copper water pipe shielding a pickup?"

 AI answer: 

 Copper water pipes are not typically used for shielding pickups in guitars. In the context provided, shielding refers to the process of reducing or eliminating electromagnetic interference (EMI) in single-coil pickups. This is usually done using copper foil or conductive paint to create a Faraday cage around the pickup, not by using copper water pipes.

 Copper water pipes, on the other hand, can be prone to corrosion if not properly maintained. To prevent corrosion, you can use a whole house water softener, which can help reduce or eliminate corrosive materials in the water supply.

 In summary, copper water pipes are not used for shielding pickups, and their primary concern is corrosion prevention, which can be addressed through the use of a water softener.
