I had the same problem with an older TNT 3 - purchased the TT, installed my cart which was the Maestro Wood - everytime I tried to to play an album I would get zaped, actually dropped several disks so I called VPI - it turns out due to the wood body of the Maestro, the grounding of the TT is only at the arm - static will not discharge through the wood.I then attached a 22g ground wire( stranded) to the bearing shaft by using a cable tie around the shaft which when pulled tight bonded the stripped wire to the shaft. This I then grounded to my amps grounding post. No more static. Hope this helps.
