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.

I put multiple coats of conductive paint and copper taped the pick-up and control cavity of my bass, it's near silent when it's not being played. The only thing my guitarist and I could hear was the near inaudible hum of the speaker being turned on, so all sound artifacts coming from the guitar are gone. It costs a fraction of what a noise reduction pedal does, and takes one more pedal off your board.

If it gets on the body of your guitar it comes off very easily with soap and a damp towel.

All of my instruments are getting this treatment.

Pros: Water clean up, goes on easy, looks great, works fantastic! Cons: Your guitar will be out of commission for a day or two as you wait for it to dry adequately between coats.

Stew Mac Shielding Paint

I was skeptic, especially with the price, but they knocked it out of the park with this paint. Enough in a can to do a box load of telecasters! I use a quarter inch wide brush, and if I get the shielding paint on the guitar finish, I immediately wipe with paper towel dampened in water. cleans right up. The shielding paint works great, but I use at least 3 coats. After the paint dries, I run a 1/4in wide piece of copper foil from the shielding up to the top of the cavity to pickguard, control plate and bridge mounting holes. No hum, no fizz, no pop nor crack. I give it 5-Stars.

What NOT to do

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.

By Daniel Carbone from Arlington VA

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."

Muy buena pintura. ++++

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.

Better than pepto Bismo!

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!
