    I’d have to start wearing a shirt while I played, that metal looks like it might get cold.

    Don Rich and James Burton would've sounded so much better if this had come along earlier.

    As someone who has a 3-lb block of brass underneath the bridge of my ES-335, I say give it a try!
    (Don't ask me if my 335 sounds better with the brass block than it did before, that was 40 years ago. But it sounds hella great now.)

    This umm...device...came up a few months ago on a Telecaster page on FB that I'm on. The OP (who either was the inventor or dealer of said "device") got his panties in a serious twist over some (well, most) of the comments. The page admin. ended up having to delete the post.

    I can think of many other things to waste my money on...

    actually, it probably works.. much like all the metal contraptions we added to our 80's era metal guitars... but, remember a guitar is a study in compromises... and what's compromised with such additions is the warmth the guitar's overall construction imparts. All that hardware just filters it out..

    This is, IMO what happened as the 80's surrendered to the 90's.. and guys started noticing the sound the C&W guys were getting from a "plank" plugged into a Deluxe... so they were trying it with their metal guitars and were surprised by how austere they sounded when played "clean".. Disgusted they waddle down to the local Guitar shop and plug a Tele into a Deluxe.. and wham!! there's the sound they wanted...
