Screws removed from Humbucker for Noiseless Single Tone http://www.strat-talk.com/forum/othe...2-minutes.html This is from Strat Talk. The vid is by the "wood makes no tonal difference" video guy, but here, he's got a point. If you remove the screws fom any p/up that has them, it weakens the magnetic field of that coil. (I did it w a single coil DeArmond years ago just for tone shaping) so w a HB you get a more single coil tone w no noise. Sort of a semi-dummy coil. He takes forever to come to the point , but the sound demos are worth while and show the sound change well.
