hi there - i'm thinking of shielding my strat and found this site! - excellent has everything i need, brilliant! i've sourced copper tape with conductive glue and will use that. the walkthrough on this site says to lift the ground loops etc. my question is if i shield the cavity and the scratchplate do i need to do the wiring mods as well? will the shielding be as effective without doing them? what difference will the wiring changes make in conjuction with the shielding?
Yeah, I was going to fix the ground loops too. I'd original picked up (no pun intended) the Guitarnuts site because of my Tele being a Buz factory (sounds like a freakin light saber when I use dimmers in our house). I plan on doing the shielding project on the Tele first as it will be easier. But I couldn't resist a few tweaks to the Strat based on the site's mod's section.
I just noticed Fender has been improving their shielding on some of their Standard Strats and Teles. Finally!!!
