Pickguard Shielding Foil

About This Item

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.

Easy to use

(Customer's Reviews)

I have glued conventional aluminum foil, but the Shielding Foil makes it easy. Place the pickguard on the foil and trace with an exacto knife. All done.


Worked great !

(Customer's Reviews)

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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.
