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

Verified Buyer


Very effective shielding, most outstanding feature is the ease of application, Foil thickness is ideal, adheres evenly, thick enough not to tear easily but cuts perfectly with a No, 11 blade.

It was easy to install. I laid it out and trimmed with not problems. I cover the back of the pickguard with this and copper tape in the cavities and pickups. No more static electricity or other noise.

Kill That Pick-guard Static

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this foil in hopes of insulating the pick guard to kill the terrible static I was getting when touching the pick guard with my fingers. It has worked great reducing the horrible noise by 95%.

Great quality

By

The shielding was nice and thick but still cut pretty easily. Adhesive held firm. There was more than enough for two pick guards.

Rice Krispies in a Gibson.

Used this along with Stew Mac Conductive Shielding Paint to stop static electricity from a 2016 Gibson SG pickguard and finish from producing audible 'crackles' while playing. Heard about a similar issue with a Jimmy Page model a few years ago too. Worked way better than putting a dryer sheet in the control cavity! (Who comes up with this stuff?)

This is a nice product, with one minor limitation

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to shield the pick guard on a Peavey T-15 electric guitar I was rebuilding. It is relatively easy to install, and the piece is big enough for 2 pick guards (good thing, because I screwed the first one up by not flipping the guard before tracing it). It is 0.003" thick by my calipers, about the thickness of 1.5 layers of heavy duty kitchen foil--very adequate. The one caveat I would offer is that the adhesive is much less conductive than the adhesive on the copper tape I also bought. For it's intended purpose no problem, but when I tried to use the left-over for other stuff, I encountered this limitation. Note that StewMac does not claim that the adhesive is conductive like their copper tape. Also, it arrived somewhat damaged due to poor packaging.
