After an hour of applying strips of copper tape to the inside of my strat, there was no change in static. I later found out that the adhesive on the strips were not conductive, making the efforts and cost of the copper tape fruitless.

My question is:
If I apply copper foil WITH conductive adhesive on top of the covered pickup cavity, the guitar should, in theory, be shielded. Yes?

..or should I remove all the copper tape before applying the copper foil?

It should work if you use foil, and I think you're ment to have a wire connecting the volume pot to the foil, not sure though.

Thanks. Can anyone else verify this?

Because I have not connected the copper foil to the point where a wire (dunno what it is because I haven't touched anything else) is soldered to the cavity.

I need to know whether or not to do this before spending $20 shipping in fairly expensive copper foil. Ta.
