    Tone woods. Sorry I had to get some input.

    Probably air quality - air pressure, moisture content, temperature etc. influence as much the vibration of the strings as the wood does. Physically, due to the comparative amount of contact there may be reason to believe that air affects the tone more. The string is not vibrating in a vacuum...

    Tone woods. Sorry I had to get some input.

    Pickups only pickup how the metal string vibrates in a magnetic field. How the sting vibrates is influenced by the material it is made from, the way it is struck and the properties of the anchor points at each end of the vibrating string.

    "Blue and green should never be seen"

    "Blue and green should never be seen"

Might be a Xmas pressie for me! So what I'd like to request is show me your blue or green LP's! Other custom colours are...

    The truth about the Billie Joe Juniors

    I remember when green day came out and I thought 'who the hell are these copy cats jumping on the quirky-punk-rock-post-grunge-thing bandwagon?' Turns out they were serious and stuck around for a few years ;) Not that BJ gives a flying fick, but him and his band earnt my respect over the years...
