2" Wide Tape

Used this to cover the inside of the guitar and had no hum or noise at all! This is the way to go. It bent very easily to fit all around the guitar cavities.

2" tape

Only place I can find copper tape this wide for shielding. That the back is also conductive makes for easy and quick work without having to solder together pieces.

no more NOISE!

I recently rewired my squire with a wiring kit, the vintage pushback wire and this conductive copper tape from stewmac, and it's amazing how much better it sounds. There's no noise anymore. I recommend the 3/4 inch stuff.

no more hum

The conductive copper tape is just the ticket for screening out extraneous hum from my single-coil guitar. I considered using ordinary baking foil, but I went for the professional option, and I'm glad I did. The copper tape applies easily, and effectively cancels noise. In addition, it looks so good, it's a pity it can't be seen beneath the pickguard!

The ONLY tape to use.

To do it right the first time use this tape. Just take your time and follow the instructions. I like the 2", cut it to any size.

This stuff is great for shielding pick-up and control cavities. Take your time and the end results are magic!

All Electrics Need a Good Shielding Job!

I shielded three guitars: Epiphone w/ P90's, Mex Tele, and P-Bass. The tape was easy to use and form to the compartments. The 2" roll is definitely the best value but sometimes curls a bit when you peal off the tape. Check YouTube for information if you're unfamiliar with the shielding process. You'll be amazed how quiet it can become. Good Luck! BB

Easiest way to shield

This tape is extremely easy to use and does a great job. I'll probably use this on all of my guitars in the future.
