Pleasantly surprised

I heard many people say the noise reduction from shielding was maybe 20 to 30%. Well, they must not have done it properly or didn't use this kit. It really works well and drastically reduced the noise. Very happy. Thanks!

A Must Have !

If you really want to quiet your axe, get this kit, an Exacto knife and take a little time. The idea
will fall into place as your do it. Does not diminish performance, actually increases and balances
tonal quality all while eliminating most of the EM/RF interference. I have done a few now. My
personal American Std. has never been more quiet at idle and smoother in performance.
I build and sell loaded pick guards, my notes always recommend this Stew-Mac kit.

Background noise fixed

(Customer's Reviews)


i had a grounding issue with my Jackson that caused a background buzz when I would crank the drive, which would stop when I touched the strings. Bought this, shielded all electronic cavities and replaced the wire from the input Jack with the shielded wire provided. Problem fixed. Now I can crank the drive for a heavy distorted tone with harmonics galore and I get no background noise.
