Conductive Shielding Paint

About This Item

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.

What NOT to do

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Right before playing a wedding, I read an article online about tone on a Strat. Well, don't believe everything you read. I have an Eric Clapton, and the article said you can get better tone from removing the paint inside the body cavity. WRONG. On a Clapton, Fender puts a conductive paint inside the cavity because of the active pick-up. I removed all the paint. Needless to say, at the wedding my guitar picked up every frequency that was near me. Sounded like a space ship when I took my hand off the strings. This paint saved my butt on almost ruining a perfectly great Eric Clapton Guitar. Thank you S.M.

Make sure you have good ventilation and are wearing gloves and an apron or clothes you don't care about. Product does the job after 3 coats, but you may need to shave some wood if you have any clearance issues with wires or Pot bodies, etc.

Drying time.

A lot of reviewers have mentioned using a hair drier to speed things up. I went to a manufacturer's website and found this interesting tidbit: "The paint needs to be dry all the way through the paint (chemically dry) and not just "touch" dry, so always leave more time when in doubt. If you put a second coat on too soon, the two coats will bond and you will not get the additional screening protection."

Works very well!!!

I applied five coats over about 12 hours. With good air circulation and thin coats, it dries very fast. Be sure to tape off every edge since it is a paint. Did every cavity and my guitar is whisper quiet. Extremely noticeable improvement that looks much better than copper foil, which I've used as well. This product is awesome.

Have been coating all the cavities in my personal guitar collection with this product. I had previously cut brass shim stock and forms it in the cavities, this is a LOT easier! Great product, time saver too!

Bought this to shield the cavities on a '91 Fender P-Bass Lyte and a '01 Geddy Lee Ltd Edition. Bottom Line: Buy it! It works!

Worked for me

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought a small can of this paint and used it on a particularly noisy guitar. Three coats. Took about 4 hours per coat to dry, but not 24. I think there's enough left to do a couple more guitars. In short, it must work because I eliminated the noise I had been getting on this guitar. I also put foil across the back of the entire pickguard, and made sure everything was grounded (I made sure everything was grounded before I ever got the paint - it's the first thing I did in an attempt to silence the instrument). So I have to give the paint the credit for quieting down this thing. Of course, every guitar is different. This one has wax potted pickups, and high quality volume and tone pots.

WOW WOW WOW

OK for those of you who are wondering if isolating your electric instrument will make a difference. Many years of playing clubs and a constant buzz or hum. I had had enough. I bought fender noiseless pickups for my Tele copy, shielding paint, copper tape, vol and tone pots and some nice little cosmetic parts to complete my fix it project. I never looked back. I am now better than 2 months into using my old used NEW and improved TELE copy. I can't say this enough times. GIT ER DONE. I am still in shock every time I plug in to my wireless rig. Pickup noise is the last thing on my mind, in fact it's not on my mind at all anymore. It was worth every penny. I feel almost stupid for not doing this years ago. Just do it!!!!!
