Good quality foil. Works very well because the adhesive appears to be conductive as well. This really cut down the number of places I had to solder foil together. A bit skimpy though, I barely had enough with the small kit to shield a tele with pickguard. Got it done though :)

I had try it on my DIY guitar, all with StewMAc parts (body, neck, p.u.- ALL ) and I wasn't thinking it will be so useful.
Today the guitar is more quite and the noise is very attenuated.
Excellent Kit

Thank You StewMAc

Great kit, great price

After reading the excellent article (on StewMac's website under "Free Information") detailing the total shielding of an electric guitar, I bought this kit to shield a project bass I was working on. The kit materials fully shielded the electronics cavity, the wiring, and both the P and J pickup cavities. It also includes a shielded ground wire for putting under the bridge. The price was great, and I didn't have to spend a lot on bulk shielding materials and have a boatload left over.


The bass now has zero hum even when plugged into "iffy" electrical situations or around a battery of lights. This kit was perfect for the job!
