Real weather checking is the only option. Razor blade is fake, time consuming and looks wrong. That said, the examples I've seen from Murphy lab don't get a nice weather checking pattern as other relicers do. I think they don't have the right nitro formula for it.
I don't like at all the work...
I think it may influence the way the string vibrantes, and seems some overtones live there.
I read somewhere (Malmsteen I think) that for example a Floyd kills the harmonic response of the headstock, as it locks/cut the connection with the tunners string lenght portion.
Some say that the lower break angle increases the harmonics, while you get more attack and fundamental with a steeper one.
Other say than the pinch harmonics jump easier with a lower one, and the masters of the technic usually string that way, but I've just been trying back and forth, changing...
After trying top wrapping for a couple of years I've came back to straight through.
I was looking for that more harmonic content theory and I'm not sure if I ever noticed a thing, but as I don't trust my ears too much, I kept it.
With the last string change I decided to go back to normal...
I will never buy anything Dimarzio. Totally against the silly double creams patent, appropriating something they didn't even invent, while gibson is bashed for the play authentic thing.
Funny thing is that they use it for manufacturing those too yellow double bobins that look wrong.
I have reversed the bridge pickup so the screw coil gets more vibration. Those are fralin unbuckers, with uneven coil, and I split the screw coil. No volume drop
Agree, I prefer whites over those super yellow Dimarzios
I have tried the opposite (I would prefer it that way), but to me is the...
