Copper Tape

I used this for a Strat project that I just completed. Lined the pickup cavities in the body and the back of the pickguard. This tape is easy to use and does the job for knocking out the hum.

Quality stuff! I bought the set of 3 along with a set of noiseless pickups - couldn't believe how quiet it was! Really easy to apply, but watch out - it's pretty sharp!

Great Stuff

If you need sheilding, this is only second to sheilding paint. I have found this works fantastic to quite down noisey, buzzy Strats. It completely kills the buzzing.

OK for those of you who are wondering if isolating your electric instrument will make a difference. Many years of playing clubs and a constant buzz or hum. I had had enough. I bought fender noiseless pickups for my Tele copy, shielding paint, copper tape, vol and tone pots and some nice little cosmetic parts to complete my fix it project. I never looked back. I am now better than 2 months into using my old used NEW and improved TELE copy. I can't say this enough times. GIT ER DONE. I am still in shock every time I plug in to my wireless rig. Pickup noise is the last thing on my mind, in fact it's not on my mind at all anymore. It was worth every penny. I feel almost stupid for not doing this years ago. Just do it!!!!!

Very Nice

I have made a few electric guitars during the last 10 years. First couple I didnt know about this. But then tried it and this made a big difference for wiring these. Great for grounding and very little hum. I know the first reaction is expensive price. But the roll lasts if used correctly.

Too Easy!

I used to use copper foil from stained glass suppliers. But you had to use solder to connect the layers for a complete circuit. Making the adhesive conductive is a thing of beauty. And it sticks really well, so the entire job can be completed in minutes. WOW!

Indispensable for any builder

Since I first found this stuff a couple of years ago I've never been without it. Much easier to use than the alternatives, and the fact that the back is conductive is a huge plus. And since it's copper, it's solderable, so attaching wires to connect separate cavities is a breeze too. Watch out for sharp edges though!
