    I've just found that if I do it that way, it gives better contact and reduces noise more.

    Just for curiosity, if you have some tape left, stick a couple of pieces overlapped on a bit wood and check it with the meter.
    It would be interesting to know what you find.
    Used the BGS stuff the other day when I converted an epi junior HB to a p90. I had no continuity issues and was super easy to work with. Didn't even solder the over laps as I thought I may have to.

    Good to know Bakersdozen. Thanks

    I still have quite a bit of 2" stuff left, but I'll have to grab some of the snail stuff and give it go.

    I have used mostly Aluminum HVAC tape. When I discovered that I could not solder it, I got some copper tape for guitar that was a lot more expensive. I soon discovered that the copper tape did not take solder any better than the aluminum tape. It was only then that I discovered that the bother the copper* and the alu adhesives were nicely conductive. [Insert headslap here].

    Even after applying liberal amounts of Alu Tape to my insulating-the-garage-door project, I still have what looks like a luthier's Lifetime supply of alu tape...which amounts to pennies per guitar.

    *Some people have no trouble soldering copper tape so YMMV.
