We use this stuff
(and also conductive paint) to shield the backs of pickguards and the inside of pickup covers. Sheilding will help if there's a lot of resonant frequencies picked up by your guitar and then amplified. Sometimes, especially for our locals who live near the Godzilla-prop Sutro Tower in the middle of San Francisco, noise-to-signal ratio makes playing your electric guitar through your amp an unattractive audio experience. Our shop routinely performs full shielding on all manner of electric guitars and it makes a big difference. We're also supportive of the DIY crew, those that like to tinker inside their own instruments. If you are so inclined we sell conductive paint in 4 ounce containers. The copper tape can be acquired from shops that sell stained glass supplies.
