Pickguard Shielding Foil

Item # 0048
In stock, ready to ship!


Total: $0.00
Quantity: 20


Self-adhesive! Cut any size you need! Stick this aluminum shielding material to the underside of your pickguard to reduce noise, hum and radio interference.

The sheet is big enough to fully shield two Strat® pickguards, or cut it up to only cover the control cavity area (you'll be able to cover a LOT of cavities!).

20-3/4" x 13" x .003" (527.05mm x 330.2mm x .08mm)

Easy to trim, and self-adhesive so it's easy to apply—no gluing, no mess. A must-have for repair shops and guitar techs.

Note: Aluminum shielding will not accept solder. Use our Conductive Copper Tape for shielding jobs where solder connections are required.

Tip: For more complete shielding, line your pickup and control cavities with self-adhesive Conductive Copper Tape, or several coats of brush-on Conductive Shielding Paint. Extend a bit of the tape or paint outside each cavity and onto the top of the guitar, to make contact with your fully shielded pickguard. The control pots installed on the pickguard are the electrical ground connection for the shielding.

Worked great !

Nice thickness to this, easy to work with /use. Worked excellent and have enough to do a 2nd PG. My Strat, along with the copper tape in the cavity, is now very quiet now, without any hum or interference.

Shielding kit worked wonders

Installed the self adhesive shielding kit on a 20 year old Tele that was giving me a ton of extra noise. Used the shielding kit on the back of the pickguard and also grounded the bridge and now have one quiet Tele. And more than enough sheilding left to do another pick guard.

Great Product

Inexpensive, effective and easy to work with. I was able to do three Tele pickguards with one sheet and still some left over for the control cavities. Placed a second order to shield a friends guitars. Good stuff.

Perfect for an old Tele.

I used this on a 69 thinline tele. Definitely quieted that classic Tele hum. I used it with the 3/4" copper tape in the cavities.

Aluminium foil

This Aluminium foil came in a big rectangular shape. Can shield many control canvities with this. Only bad thing is that since it's aluminium its hard to solder to. Other than that very good.

Very good

Big sheet. Could use on two pick guards or shield your entire guitar if you wanted too. It sticks well and cuts fairly easy. Overall great product.

I used this on my '93 Fender MIM Jazz bass pickguard & it removed all the static I had when I touched the pickguard.It was easy to apply & it was simple to trim off the excess.I also have enough left to do another pickguard.Thanks Stew-Mac.
