Helloo! Dumb question time folks.
Will strong tin foil work as shielding, I was a bit quick bragging about my low budget refurb and now I want to cut cost's to stay in budget for two reasons

1) I'm skint
2) I'm Scottish

From what I have read copper foil tape is the standard tape method as opposed to conductive paint, I have left the paint in the guitars cavities intact, didn't have a lot of hum before, just want to put this together once and avoid any probs, and being a cheapskate thought about glueing thick tin foil in, also coating the pickguard in foil
