Copper Shielding - Rectangular (20cmx25cm)
This rectangular copper shielding tape is ideal for use with pickguards on instruments including the stratocaster, telecaster, precision bass, and jazz bass. For shielding the guitar body cavity, you may want to use the the long version instead.
Note: Typically, 1 pickguard only requires 1 order. Size is 20cm x 25cm
It has adhesive on one side and is double conductive. This is what we use in our wiring services and found it to be effective.
By shielding, you can significantly reduce undesired electrical interferences, most often the high pitch buzzing sound. Shielding will prevent your guitar's wiring from acting as an antenna and collecting stray signals that are in the air. The all-too-familiar buzz through the amplifier can be brought on by radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic frequency interference (EMI) near your instrument.
Keep in mind that shielding won't get rid of the 60-cycle hum. This calls for the usage of a humbucker pickup configuration.
