Reduces hum, noise and radio interference.
The fastest and easiest way to shield pickup and control cavities. Perfect for tight spots.

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.

Much Better than Foil

By DavidG from Albany, Georgia USA

I was glad to find this product. I definitely wanted to shield for noise but had dreaded the foil shielding I was familiar with.

This is straight forward, neat, clean, and does the job. It looks so much better than the copper foil.

Thanks, StewMac

This product worked very well, it did not seem to runny and it dried well. I did use a heat gun to expediate drying with three coats. Final results were an extremely quiet single coil guitar, but I also used a single ground bar and avoided ground loops. I feel this product was a bit over-priced but it worked well and is easier to use than copper foil.

Easy to apply, just be careful!

I decided to shield the pickup cavity on one of my Strat's after doing some routing for a pickup. I taped off the area around the cavity, bought some disposable brushes at Home Depot, and put 3 coats on. I wish the stuff dried faster, this took 3-days but did a great job of coating the guitar. I made sure to connect the shielded area to the ground of the electronics, very important. This paint is VERY runny, so go easy and take your time. The Strat is nice and quiet, no complaints.

Works great

Much easier than copper foil. I got 4 coats on in about 3 hours using a fan and blow dryer to speed up the drying process. Not sure if there is any actual value to waiting 24 hours, but the blow dryer seems the way to go. Only complaint would be the cost but this can should last a long time...

Better than shielding tape in control cavity

By David S from Seattle, WA

I like this better than tape for inside a control cavity. Works best on bare wood. Stains EVERYTHING very easy, be careful especially with brush splatter. Use blue painter tape to mask off body around where you will be painting. Use in a place you won't go nuts if there is an accidental spill, like the garage and not in the dining room with better overhead lighting.

Will not come off carpet. I found one thick coat and a 24 hour dry time adequate. I soldered a lug to the bridge ground wire and then screwed the lug into the cavity and the used that for universal ground. Works very well, very silent, could play in front of a neon light holding a soldering iron next to the pickups and it would be noise free. Not for use on the backside of a Stratocaster pick guard... just saying...

This product is used for most of our shielding needs. Easier to apply than foil tape and just as effective. Be sure to tape off areas you don't want it on, as its somewhat thin and will run if given the chance.

So so good...

Such a simple and easy way to get rid of excess noise... 4 coats of shielding paint did the trick for me... and use a hair dryer to speed up the drying time if needed.

Goodbye Buzz!!!

By Guitarjoe1 from Hollywood, Los Angeles
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, July 21, 2011

Initially I wanted to use copper tape, but the paint was so much easier. I used 4 coats of paint in the pickup cavity, the input jack & the trem cavity at the back (24 hours drying time in between coats) I did use a copper shield under the Pickguard. Voila... buzz completely gone.

Make sure there is contact between the copper shield and the paint (I painted the area under the pickguard. You can't see the paint now as the pickguard is placed back on)This stuff is so good that I also did a friends guitar and he is thrilled to bits too!!!
