Don't forget, wikipedia can be edited by anyone.
And I think that if that IS true, it's due to the pickup being mounted in that plate. It'll make a larger difference in a strat than it will in a Les Paul, if you get my gist.
But I would have no reason to disbelieve that if the pickup was in the metal scratchplate, it might sound a little different.

You'd never be able to hear the tone difference, it it even exists.

How do you explain the vastly audible twang factor of a tele in comparison with the strat, then?
As well as the bridge, I'd attribute part of that to the metal plate.

Oh, maybe the pickup, too >.>

im pretty sure the metal pickguard wont work with a sustaining pickup, so dont get a sustain pickup
#14
Im probably going to be keeping the pickups stock, exept maybe putting in a SD hotrails in the bridge.

Should be fine. You can dial out any unwanted differences in your amp. Plus, you'll look badass
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

be careful, TS.

in addition to changing the pattern of the magnetic field on the coil of the pickup (and changing the tonal characteristics), if a metal pickguard resonates, it can make the pickup prone to acoustic feedback. Also, the pick can move, in relationship to the pickguard, unless the mounting springs are VERY strong. this movement is not a big deal if the pickguard is plastic. but if metal, this ability to be moved will also cause acoustic feedback.

I agree with someone you knew, I've heard it causes horrific feedback.

What if it's a metal like aluminum which isn't as prone to magnetic pull?

It can still cause feedback but it won't change the overall tone like steel would.
Not taking any online orders.

of course they can't advertise falsely.

no one has ever made false claims just because it would be more trouble than it's worth to sue them over it.

Why would i need to sue them? Id just return it and get a refund, since i have a personal garantee it wont do anything. Therefore the product is not sold as advertised, therefore i can return it without any problems.
