1st time use

By James from Nashua, NH

Just got this tape today. I'm not a guitar tech or a luthier and have NEVER attempted this before! I bought the 2" roll. Very easy to use. The key, as with most things, is to go slow and be meticulous. If you don't you'll end up wasting a lot of tape. I shielded my strat and my LP with plenty left over for at least 2 more guitars!! Cheers and good luck

I don't get as much time to work on guitars as I'd like to. The last roll of 2" copper tape I got from StewMac was 25 years ago. Hopefully I'll use this new roll up faster! :)

This was an excellent choice

My Les Paul had a static buzz when I would move my hands over the body. I did a fair amount of online research, and found everyone who successfully solved this problem did so by shielding the cavities. It took me about 45 minutes total to remove the back plates and electronics, line both cavities, and put it back together. The guitar is now completely quiet--problem solved 100%. I don't know why they don't do this at the factory, because its a very easy fix to a big headache.

great product

Great stuff right here!!

Super easy to use and for the price, you can't go wrong. I never fully shielded a guitar before so I did the control box on the back first. My guitar is a rear rout model so I had to be sure I did a neat job on the front. Once I got started the rest was easy and it looks excellent and my hum is gone!! 150% Recommend this Copper Tape!!

This is thick, strong and easy to use without having to solder all the joins. A great look and a real time saver. Quality stuff from Stewmac. I won't use anything else ever again!
