Wilde Bill's L500XL

For my late Christmas present to myself I've decided to get some Wilde Bills 500XL's. The question is shielded or unshielded. Whats the difference between the two and is it worth the extra money?

I own two older early 1980's BL XL-500's and six BL L-250's great pickups.
It's better if you get the shielded pick up, so you won't pick up radio stations, get hum or deal with any squeal from being to close to a loud amp
