A few months back a switched out bodies from an alder Highway 1 to a light weight ash from Mark Jenny. I used the same components on both. I just switched bodies. The issue I am having is that I am getting a lot more squeal from the pickups (mostly bridge) with the ash body. Does that make any sense? One thing I noticed is that the brass plate of the bridge pup rubs on the pickup route wall on the ash body. Like it was machined a little off spec. Could that contribute to more micro-phonics? Has anyone had a similar experience? While the ash definitely has a different character than the alder HWY-1 and looks much better, I am not sure which I like the sound of better. The HWY-1 body had an evenness to it that just worked.
