Just curious if the half bridge was a fad or still popular here.
Not a fad really. I would consider one rather than a strat hardtail type if I was building a humbucker equipped Tele. Not so much for looks or anyting but because of the feel of the spacing and the feel of the bridge itself for string muting
There is no magic other than the bridge/saddle position for the strap pins and thigh cut out how it causes you hand to naturally rest and pick. Vs Strat ergonomics and LP cause other picking locations.
'Hate' is too strong a word. I have it in one guitar, and I am in the process of shopping around for a full-size brass bridge. I think I'm used to the full-size ones and I am not convinced the tonal difference (if any) is significant.
G.E. seems to think it's better. But, he's one heck of a player. Makes anything sound good.
I think it's a thing that if you think it makes a difference, then it does.
But, maybe only to you. I'm in the try anything club if it truly makes a difference. Carry on!
So, does a neck pickup screwed to the body sound different than one attached to the pickguard?
I like the way they look. I just built 2 teles with half bridges, but I did use pickup rings. I did think about direct mounting though.
