  • Tone is in the pickguard

    Didn't want to waste my time reading that...the title/description was too stupid to consider. Normally I enjoy a good battle of wits, but there are no "wits" here.

      The science behind this actually makes good sense.

        This could open up a new frontier in the hunt for rare materials. Maybe not as important as the minerals and metals used in electronics manufacturing - at least not yet - but anyone who's in a position to capitalize on a newly discovered reserve of this Triassic dinosaur oil could benefit from a huge and unexpected upside.

                  I mean, sure, April Fools, but let's be real... the market for original 1950s and 1960s pickguards is probably closer to $10K than we want to think it is.
                  Duncan Pickups in currently in use: '59 (rewound to PATB-3)/'59, Custom/AP2H, Tapped QP set for Tele, Crazy 8/Cool Rails, Screamin' Demon/Stra-Bro 90, Custom 5/Phat Cat, SP90-1/SP90-2, SMB-5D

                      lol, Gibson..

                      Nothing like cracked gummy 70 yr old plastic to make all the difference

                      And these are the same moron's who say "tone isn't in the finger's"

                      Cuz Gary Moore had such an incredible tonefull pickguard

                        On a serious note, the pickguard did make a difference when I changed it on my Strat...



                        ... because one pickguard has the hole for the bridge pickup 2 or 3 mm closer to the bridge, which I much prefer.

                          Ya, cuz a Strat has the pup's mounted on the pickguard. I can see that mattering. In this case (Les Paul) with pickups mounted to the body, it's the sympathetic resonance of the pickguard that supposedly makes all the difference. Call me a sceptic, but that's utter BS

                            I didn’t even have to open the article. I figured everyone would be used to this happening by now .

                              Oh yeah, changing the position of the pickup under the string is quite a dramatic difference. The timbre of most bass guitars is heavily determined by exactly where they mount their pickups. I have an idea that expands upon the concept for the OG Gibson Grabber but with a less pathetic range of motion and more stability once located.
