    What do you guys use and where should I buy it from?

    I found Copper tape at Home Depot, would that work?

    Should work as well as anything else, just make sure to ground it.

    They also make a metalized paint for shielding guitar cavities, not sure how you ground that.

    There's conductive cloth tape too, way easier on the fingers. I've used it on several guitars and its excellent.
