On Dimebags guitars, you can see he had electrical tape on his pickups. I would assume he does this so they pickup more sound, making a louder crunchier tone. Is this true, or why did he do that? And should I?

RIP DIMEBAG

ermmm... no.
he did it so the strings wouldnt get stuck under/caught on them whilst dive bombing.
so unless you have a floyd rose or floating trem, its pretty much useless

RIP DIMEBAG

So the strings dont get caught on the edges of the pickups when doing extreme divebombing it happens on the bridge pickup on my ibanez all the time so i put duct tape on it. He used a bill lawrence pickup in the bridge position so he never had that problem there because there are no edges same with single coils.

that's more like it....too many kids round here are unhealthily obsessed with a guy who got fat then got shot.

Darrell was an amazing guitarist and he died tragically but there's really no reason to keep harping on about it. If you really want to make a statement and honour his memory then stop buying the crap that Dean keep churning out with his name plastered all over the place. He only got killed once...Dean are raping his corpse every day.

I'm still trying to understand how the TS got to: tape on pickups = louder/crunchier
