Did a Highway one tele. Much better. Neck P.U. as quiet as a Humbucker. Still a bit of buzz on the bridge. Will probally do a second wrap. Biggest difficulty was deciding to start; downhill from there.

Order Extra Tape

Good product, easy to apply. But you will not have enough tape to do your entire cavity. I ordered the kit for a old strat, didn't have enough copper foil, so order the larger kit or an extra roll.

I bought this kit to shield my Affinity Strat in an attempt to reduce the hum. The copper sheeting with down fairly easily given the shape of the cavity, but it was helpful to have dealt with large sheets of adhesive material in an earlier life so that I knew to make several small pieces out of the backing rather than try to put it down as a single piece. I didn't use the wiring as it appeared that my pickups, which were Golden Age from a prewired pickguard purchased from Stewmac previously, were already shielded and wired as the shielding kit described and the cavity was completely shielded. I think the shielding kit helped reduce the hum but there's still more to be done to hopefully reduce it to 0.

You don’t realize exactly how much you needed this kit until you have installed it. My guitar is noise free now. Thanks for the great product.

When I opened the package I was sure it was not enough material for my guitar, but I was wrong! It included more than enough copper foil for one guitar, with some left over. Quality stuff. StewMac rarely disapoints.

Tight on material, but got the job done.

I bought this to shield my 60’s reissue Strat. It wasn’t as easy to install as I’d hoped as the adhesive makes inserting the pieces into the bottoms of the pickup routs tricky. And there was just barely enough foil for a three pickup guitar without shielding the pickups. In the end, though, the results were fantastic. The difference in the noise that comes from this guitar is amazing. For the first time in the 20 years I’ve had it I can use the single pickup switch settings comfortably.

Install was easy and made my P-Bass super quiet!

I just have to say, StewMac is an awesome site. I stumbled upon it while I was looking for parts to upgrade my Squier Affinity P-Bass and I am more than impressed! I found exactly what I was looking for very quickly and the delivery time was incredibly quick. The shielding kit came with thorough instructions and made for a very simple install. I was also very impressed that the shielding kit came with extra solder and shielded wiring just in case you might need it. I highly recommend StewMac for any of your luthier needs. 100% satisfied with my purchase and will definitely be a return customer very soon. Definitely going to order another large kit to get my Fender Modern V Jazz Bass' noise under control.

Thank you StewMac!!!!
