I decided to try playing bass after playing guitar for years. Bought a used Squier P bass, and set it up, but it had that noise when you weren't touching the strings. Did lots of research and decided to try shielding it, This package was barely enough to shield the p bass. Worked beautifully. Amp all the way up and volume pot wide open and no noise at all. Some literature says the adhesive is conductive, but there is some disclaimer paperwork in the package that says you may have to solder the pieces together. I didn't have to, and checked each piece for continuity. It worked just great! After hearing the difference, I will be shielding my other guitars.
The whole purpose was like everyone else, to rid a guitar, in this case a Fender bass, of unwanted hum. I did the research on the 'net, watched several YouTube videos, and purchased this product while at Guitar Center. To my surprise, on the inside of the package, an Important Note was there. Basically, to ensure "true" shielding, any over lapping pieces should be soldered. Other products I viewed indicated that the adhesive on the foil also was conductive and did not need soldering. But in the end it all worked out. Just some extra time to make sure all pieces were connected.
I bought this tape to get rid of a noise that I was getting when I installed Vintage 1962 Precision Bass Pickups. I had already changed the pots and upgraded the wiring too and that did not help. I read on the internet that it was a shielding issue if your guitar makes noise when you take your fingers off the strings. That was what I was getting so I decided to shield the pickup cavity,the pots and control cavity and the pickup guard. I did this soldered a wire to the shielding and ground. Worked like a charm the guitar is totally silent now no noise with the volume up or hands on or off the strings. Sounds so much better great inexpensive fix all smiles now.
