Johnny7 and Slacker seem to dabble quite a bit in guitar/amp work... is it just a matter of lining the cavities with the copper tape or is there more to it?
Any single coil guitar will benefit by lining the cavity behind the pickups and creating a quasi-Faraday cage (Strat, Tele, P-90). I have used copper and also heavy aluminum foil and soldering it to ground. In a really awful room there is no escaping some hum with single coil pickups. There are guys do use gates but I prefer a little background hum to gates in my signal. Gated guitar tails give me hives. YMMV
