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.

Nice and Sticky

My son and I shielded the back of a pickguard with this foil. The sticky material is strong, so you won't have to worry about it coming off. Recommended.

I have used this on all my Strats for years. Winters at 6000 ft are full of static electricity. This solves that problem completely. No more snap crackle or pop when a finger gets close to a switch or pickup screw head.

Single coil guitar is quieter

Sturdy material and easy to install. My Stratocaster is noticeably quieter after installing this shielding foil on the back of the pick guard. I also painted the control cavity with conductive paint and shielding foil tape in the control cavity. Can be done by someone without prior experience.

when combined with the conductive electrical tape, the foil provides a perfect shield for the interior of the Strat components. Excellent product and very easy to use.

Great product

I've used this before. You need to be careful to avoid creases. I find it works well to lay it on a board, tape the corners into place, nice and flat and stretched out, with masking tape. Then, when I peel off the backing paper, I have a nice flat surface to lay my pickguard, or control cover, onto. It is then simple to cut around the guard or cover with an X-Acto knife. I then sand the edges of the foil with 600 grit. Very simple and produces beautiful shielded panels. A quick rub-over with the base of the knife handle or a plastic tool, to remove any air bubbles and the result is excellent.

Used copper foil inside the cavity’s and used this shielding for PG. Tamed the hum. It’s not completely gone but it helped to the point where it’s not annoying. This is an easy job.

Calms down the buzz

I just love the ease of installation of this foil. Just lay the pick guard on top and trace around the edges, cut on the inside of the line. Peel and stick and bingo!!! 15 minute job, heck the 11 screws took longer to remove and reinstall than the application of the foil. Price is right too.

Static Pick-guard Noise completely Gone!!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the pick-guard shielding foil because my Vintage Fender 72 Telecaster Custom had a lot of pick-guard static which had made the guitar nearly unplayable due to the crackling and popping from the 3-ply pick-guard. The foil was easy to cut & fit to the back of the pick-guard and completely eliminated the static. Great product with the sticky back, no glue needed.
