Shielding a Strat

Here I will show the process of shielding a Strat guitar. For this process I used a sticky copper tape and an aluminum pickguard shield, both were ordered from eBay.

 The guitar as it comes from Corona.

 It's important to cover all cavities.

 Including the output jack cavity.

 Done with the copper tape.

 This is the aluminum shield. Sits secretly underneath the pickguard.

 It's necessary to remove all electronics from the pickguard for the shield installation.

 All done, the guitar is more quiet now and less bound to radio interference.

Adding Malmsteen's secret weapon...
