    I dig the 60s pickguard as much as the faux poles.

    You could name that axe the Yellow Submarine.

    I hate holepunches! Some people in my office punch holes in every handout and the dang chads get everywhere.

    "COLD" "STERILE" "HEAVY METAL" EMG PICKUPS!!!

    I always thought that was funny. Anything that is not traditional is "cold" and "sterile". They're some of the best sounding pickups out there, clean, distorted, and all points in between.

    Metal buttons on top of the pickup reduce the high end response a bit, depending on the thickness and conductivity of the metal punch-outs. I'm sure nobody cares, but I just wanted to point out that it's not a purely aesthetic outcome.

    We care! We care!

    But where are we going to find 1/16" aluminuminmum?

    Aluminuminmum would be even worse! What you want to do is go to Jo Ann's, purchase a silver paint marker, and draw circles on the top of the pickup. They're just EMG's, might as well give it a shot.

    There's a market for that, just call them "EMG Tone Boosters."

    but you just did.

    I believe the point of it was in a HUMOROUS way, spoof the local purists.

    Gawd almighty.

    You cant do ANYTHING anymore without somebody getting their panties in a knot.

    This is awesome!! haha very clever.

    How do they sound? Do we all bash active pickups for no good reason?

    Uh, middy and Edsel, I didn't title my post "Got to Keep the Haters on Their Toes." That's not "sharing" by any stretch of the imagination. I think my response was exactly on point, given the passive-aggressive nature of the OP. You don't need to agree with me. It's OK to be wrong.
