Just enough

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Exactly as advertised. I now have a very quiet guitar. However i needed to be very accurate and frugal with using it as it is only just and I mean just enough for one guitar with not the slightest bit left. If you wish to do the pick guard as well then get the large one.

not enough copper

By
(Customer's Reviews)


the tape quality was good. but for the cost they should have given you more for the guy who doesnt do this very often. i dont recomend buying this product. it is very fusterating watching your tape get used up thru inexperience knowing you wont have enough to finish.having to fill in with tin foil was nuts. how often do most people shield therer guitars? even just a little more would have been great. the tape will not do the sides so you have to finish using the sheet. very dissapointed

Amazingly Quiet

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought the Standard kit to shield a very noisy MIM Jazz bass. The kit had more than enough copper to do the job which only took about an hour and a half. When I was done, the meter showed very good conductivity throughout the cavities, even without soldering. When it was all back together, it was unbelievably quiet, even with the amp cranked and the single coils solo'd. Really an amazing difference. Well worth the time and money.
