Hello all,

So I recently brought my guitar into sam ash to play and one of the clerks said it would be a good idea to remove the active electronics in my 1978 RD Artist to give it a less bright or better sound. Those were his words, but is it a good idea to do this?

No.

It's difficult to find a seventies RD Artist in original condition. Removing the original active electronics would seriously devalue the guitar and it would remove what's distinctive about the guitar. You really want to take advice that you get from guitar store clerks with about a half a bag of salt. Some of them are complete idiots. Others, not so complete. But still idiots.

What?

I'm curious why you brought your guitar into a Sam Ash to play?
