My strat is shielding under the pickguard and it still buzzes, should I shield the cavity with tin foil?

Tin foil wont do anything. Is the whole cavity on your guitar shielded or just the back side of the pickguard.

Tin foil does work.

I did it with my Squier. The bigger problem is all the ground loops in Strat wiring. Check out 'Quieting the beast' on www.guitarnuts.com

Alot of places now will put a piece of shielding on the back of the pickguard. Its usually there as cheaper way to ground the control pots. They can then leave the ground wires off the pots. It wont do much for shielding as it only covers a small part of the compartment. As for tin foil I have several luthiers books and they all say tin foil does nothing to shield a guitar. If it did as cheap as it is dont you think the guitar companies would have started doing it along time ago. Another place you get noise is in the wire to the output jack, most places just run 2 wires instead of a shielded one.
