Great kit!

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.

Self-adhesive shielding kit, large.

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!!!!

Utmost Practicality

Great kit, guys. Well thought out and versatile. Used it to wire in a new output jack and shield the control cavity of my old bass to yield the old tone that I remembered from years ago. Plenty of material left for other projects. Now where do I start?

Just enough

By

Verified Buyer


The smaller kit was just barely enough to do a telecaster. It’s all nice quality but make sure you plan out your cuts and don’t mess up or you’ll run out.

Shielding just one? Go this way!

This is an easy way to isolate material costs on a single job. Normally I stock in bulk. But I don't force myself to account for the scraps and cut-off pieces.
