When connected to electrical ground, the shielded surfaces help reduce noise, hum and radio interference. It cleans up with water while still wet, and dries overnight.

Brush on two or more coats of this waterbase dark gray conductive paint for best results (let dry between coats). Conductive shielding paint is supplied in a 1/2-pint can, sufficient for shielding several electric guitars, and in a money-saving 1-pint can. We recommend our conductive tape for best results when shielding smooth plastic pickguards.

Very useful and convenient

A superb, cost-effective and easy to use shielding product. We use this on all of our Drew & Sebastian custom guitars and basses. Highly recommended for the luthier and amateur alike, won't peel off like shielding tape.

Buzz OFF!

Excellent for helping to eliminate unwanted Buzz/noise from outside or signal interference. easy to paint guitar control cavity when copper shielding cannot be installed.

Shielding made easy

I purchased the paint after using the foil tape for a long time. The foil can be difficult to use properly and if not done correctly will only cause problems. This paint is easy to apply, doesn't require additional soldering and seems to create a good shield against outside interference. I am glad that I made the switch.

Great product.

This worked out wonderfully. I put about six or seven coats throughout the interior of the guitar. You also will want to put in a screw with a wire attached to it, and paint over that. This wire will lead to the ground of the guitar. You won't be shielding properly if you don't provide a way for the interference to lead to ground, so be aware of that. You can also later sand down with some fine and very fine grit sandpaper, which makes for a more pleasant look.

If it's not a vintage instrument, I would probably recommend this instead of the copper tape. It's very easy to use, but once it's on, it's staying on.

Bought this paint for a noisy bass that had been getting on my nerves. Had a guy put three coats on the cavity and its quiet as a mouse now. Little pricey(everything is for me) but gets the job done.

A real time saver

Although this stuff seems to be pricey, it really saves a lot of time, not just as a quick way to get a good shield, but with a little planning, it allows you to ground everything without wires going everywhere. Also if you use a good hair bristle brush (not the throw away stiff bristle kind) one coat is plenty...just clean the brush with soap and water asap.

Incredible and Easy!

This stuff works! I use it for all control,pickup, Switch etc. cavities for grounding. It's incredible. I took an Ohm meter to check the continuity when it was dry and it REALLY DOES WORK!
BUY This, you won't be sorry:)
