Hello All! I am upgrading a 50's American Original Strat and want to preserve the original looks of it but make some upgrades inside. I plan on building a fully grounded Faraday cage with copper tape and either aluminum pickguard shielding foil or a solid aluminum pickguard shield. My questions are: Is there an advantage to a solid aluminum shield (.018") versus pickguard shielding foil (.003")? One concern I have is having the thicker solid shield push my pickguard out enough that dirt and dust will collect and would look a bit silly as well without providing a huge advantage? Am I wrong? I am installing Lollar Blonde pickups on an American Original 50's Strat and can't decide whether to do a blender mod or keep the standard wiring. I was looking at the pre-wired Emerson blender kit versus their standard wiring kit. I know this is a personal preference thing but am interested in hearing your thoughts. Thank you in advance for your help!!!
