Well, it ain't more necessary, but it probably is necessary. Assuming that the chrome pickguard is usable as a shield (if'n it ain't metal, if it's a chrome layer on a plastic back, use foil to shield the bottom over the cavities).
If it is metal and can be connected to the circuit common, it still will only shield one side of things. You probably will need to shield the pickup and wiring cavities in the body if not already done.
Once the pickguard is connected to the circuit common, you're even more of a candidate for "Shielding the Beast" and using an amp wiring fault isolation capacitor.

Yes, it is a metal chrome pick guard. I'll be shield ing the cavities and doing the grounding as recommended on Guitarnuts. I just didn't know if having the chrome guard would make things worse or better.
So I'll shield the cavities, and connect the guard to the cirquit common as if it ws shielded using the aluminum foil.
BTW: does the rear spring cavity need to be shielded too? I find it on the page.
