Quality Of Stock Shielded Cavities


Recommended Posts

The shielding property of factory-sprayed work varies from negligible to good. There's a good chance that you'll obtain at least some tiny benefit by re-shielding it.

Copper tape isn't necessarily the "be-all, end-all", and I'm sure that many factory jobs and home jobs using conductive paint will do a fantastic job. But most of the factory jobs I've seen tend more toward the "minimal" burst of paint rather than an "attention to details" job. It's the attention to details that's important. With conductive paint, you'll have to build up enough and ensure continuity in all the right places in order for it to be effective, and I don't trust that most factories care THAT much for their production-line guitars.
