Shielding question for a Frank build...?

Post by Berlin » Thu Apr 06, 2017 5:17 pm

I have a '78 bare - Frank project im putting together. And I wanted to ask here how necessary it would be, if AT ALL, to shield a project like that- or if any one else has.
I have the stew Mac shielding paint... And also thought if I go the shielding route, to get the pick guard shielding foil, as well as use shielded push back wire for the other various connections between the jack and pot... Kinda cover the whole shielding kaboodle- :lol:
I don't know? - maybe too much shielding can be just that... Unnecessary and too much - :shrug:

Any suggestions on whether to even bother with shielding at all?- will be much appreciated! I don't want to do the copper foil either- I'd rather use the paint I have, if necessary.

Thank you :thumbsup:

I think it is a wise decision to to do a little extra as far as noise reduction goes. I have definately skimped on this but am going to rewire a couple guitars soon with this (shielding) in mind.
