Was the copper shield connected to anything? It's common in electrics to ground the strings, so that the big bag of water playing it acts as an (electrical) noise sink. Perhaps the pickup was noisy, and an electric guitar tech tried grounding the strings to reduce noise. Why one string was left out, I can't say.
