aside from the reassured grounded protection I can not believe the clarity this brings to your guitar. Was astounded by the silence my guitar had after installing and finishing, can't even tell its plugged in and left on. not hard to use or shape and perfect amount to do a deep LP or GIbson. Very worth it and gonna do all my guitars with it for now on.

Everything you need in this kit. I bought this kit for an old National lap steel guitar. The job was much easier than I expected.

I used this kit on an old Kramer Pacer. The change was dramatic. It's very quiet now. I recommend this.

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.
