Does putting duct tape over the pickups of a strat(or any guitar for that matter) mess with the sound or quality? Well, 'quality' as in 'does it mess with the signal'.

if you're talking about what i think you are, people usually do it when they've removed a pickup, and just tape over the empty cavity

It shouldn't, as long as it doesn't touch the strings.

Dimebag and Steve Vai put tape on the sides of the bridge pickup to prevent strings from getting caught under it when they do whammy bar divebombs. There's your random fact of the day. Why do you want to do it?

Already did it, just wanted to see if it messed with anything. Um, it's on a crappy Ibanez Gio 'box' guitar. I put duct tape over the Hum-bucker because it came loose and touched the strings. I put tape on the neck so it matched....then I drew on the duct tape :P it's a quaint thing

Yeah, Why? and No, it won't.

Paul Gilbert got a trick from Joe Satriani about filling any gaps in the pickup cavity with foam to help prevent some feedback and microphonics.

I always wondered what that green tape on Vai's pup was for! I think its only on one guitar (flo?) though.
