Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

You can. I can slap scales. It's just getting accurate with your slaps.

Slap is way easier on guitar than pop. The strings are to close for pop, but with slap, you can make some nice sounds.

And its exactly like if you were to slap on a bass, only a guitar. Just practice it and you will get it.

EDIT: muting the strings can help you out to so that you dont sound off the wrong strings.

I don't really know much about bass techniques, what's the difference between a slap and a pop?
Sounds kind of like tapped harmonics.

Slap is whacking the string with your thumb, a pop is using your index finger and hooking the string from underneath I believe.
