    Very cool! And if you apply the shielding tape to the back of both it ight actually strengthen them a little too!

    If you ground a cavity, you still need to solder/connect it to ground somehow, or it won't be a shield so much. Particularly if you are trying to draw a static charge out of the pickguard. You have to give the charge somehwere to go.

    Might want to sheild and ground the back of it. I think if it's a real vinyl album it will pick up static from your hands strumming.

    started a topic Vinyl pickguard

    Vinyl pickguard

    So I got this pickguard and control plate made out of Pink Floyd's The Wall on vinyl. Pretty slick, as it's one of my faves, Gilmour is my spirit animal, and he plays a Tele on some of the songs. Goshen Guitar Works was great to work with via text and email.

    Anyone else used a vinyl record pickguard? Anything to watch for during install or regular use? He said it's flimsy so use hand tools. I was going to check the taper of the PG screws, but he said he countersinks the holes so the stock screws will work. And he warned me the control plate wouldn't hold up under aggressive knob use, so that'll be my own risk.

    If\when I remember, pics of the install will come!
