title says it - is there any reason to bother shielding the pickup cavity if there's no pickguard to form a "lid" on the cage? should i save myself the trouble on a new build i'm doing?

The answer is yes -- shield the pickup cavity (whether with copper tape or with conductive shielding paint is up to you) and the control cavities. I don't think I've got a guitar that isn't shielded at this point.title says it - is there any reason to bother shielding the pickup cavity if there's no pickguard to form a "lid" on the cage? should i save myself the trouble on a new build i'm doing?
Exactly - without full coverage there is little point. Control cavities and covers are another thing I always shield those.thanks for the thoughts on this... i think i'm going to leave the pickup cavity unshielded. the whole idea of the faraday cage is that it's fully enclosed, right? a "cage" isn't much of a cage if there's no top (e.g., pickguard) to close it.
