"Shielding the inside of the box can be necessary To help with feedback, electrical fields in a stage setting and RF issues. A lot of musicians will shield the cavities of their guitars(solid and hollow body). You can use the copper foil to cover the…"

"If you’ve got an old guitar cable laying around, that’s shielded wire? A little bulky, but it works the same? Something to think about is that most of the hum people encounter, comes from bad soldering, so you can shield the heck out of…"

Copper foil tape as shield.

Trying to "hum-proof" my latest build and read somewhere that the jack output leads should be shielded. Can't get shielded cable so am considering wrapping the wires with copper foil tape.

Why have a switch?

Up to now I've done all my own soldering etc but recently I've been looking on-line at pre-wired harnesses.   Almost all of them include a toggle switch.   Why would you need one with just one volume and one tone pot?   Do they serve a useful purpose?See More
