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.

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
(Customer's Reviews)


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!!!

Easy shield

By

I have made a copper foil shielded area in a Strat cavity and it was hard work.This paint is so easy to use.Slop on 3-4 coats and the job is done. I have a cheap Strat that sounded great but the hum was annoying loud. I painted under the pickup and control cavities and now the hum is so soft it is barely noticeable. Highly recommended for all guitars.

It's as simple as pie

Listen this shielding paint works perfect and fantastic. I have basically quit using copper foil except for tab over grounding to pickguard shield. Put a strip of copper foil and paint it over in the rout cavity and put it over a pickguard screw hole to bind the shields together. Also forget the day of drying, can anybody say hair dryer? Works fast and coats are on in minutes instead of hours. Duh try heating your work up and then painting that works too!

The Best Shielding Option

By
(Customer's Reviews)


If you have any routing work inside the control cavity this is a great solution. It's much easier than lining an area with copper foil. This is essential for any electronics installation inside a guitar in-which you need to re-shield an area..

A bit messy!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Works well but is a bit messy to apply. Three coats (third over screw connection) made for good electrical connection. Cleans up with water when wet but don't get it on untreated wood or you will have a bit of sanding to do. Accurately mask all bits you DON'T want painted.

The Paint Beats Copper

Using this shielding paint makes an easy job of shielding your guitar. Only drawback is you need at least 3 coats and must allow a day between each to dry.
