    So heres a video of Slash's new tech. He talks about all his stuff he's taking on the road. I do have a question though, He put in a JCM 800 2203 re-issue. Anyone ever played em?

    They kinda get mixed reviews from alot of players , but if Slash and his tech have retubed them w 6550's & gone though the entire amp , i would bet it sounds great !! If you have ever had a chance to hear or play a ZW800 head , those are killer huge tone heads imo .... so it would be in the same vein .

    Its just cosmetic really,solid colours tend to come with them on whilst bursts etc. tend to come with them in the case so you can see more of the finish if you wish.
    Unless you pick like an angered ape of course!

    I did it just because it looked better without it. And I didn't feel the need for it anyway. It being a Studio, all these parts are made of cheap plastic, so removing them actually raises the value of the instrument :lol:
    Anyway, playing without the pickguard did cause some wear to the finish, but I like that, it's what makes the instrument "mine" if you know what I mean. One day Gibson will make a road worn replica of my fleabag (as I call her) :applause:

    there is no need to laugh at me, I only asked a simple question.
    I have never heard that having the pick guard on or off can make any difference. but now that I have I thought I would ask what the difference is, if any.

    I currently only own a Westfield Les Paul in tobacco sunburst, but I am currently saving for the real thing.
    as mine is only a replica, I didn't think there would be much tone benefit as there would be with a real Gibson. almost like there isn't much difference taking the tremolo cover off a strat.
    it might make a difference on a real strat but not so much on a replica.

    as far as taking the pick guard off a Les Paul is concerned, I have always left mine on with previous guitars, otherwise you can see the two screw holes where the guard has been attached to the body.
    but the guitar I have now has a much more attractive colour than my previous guitars, and the screw holes can't really be seen. so I've taken the guard off.

    how can playing without the pick guard cause damage to the finish?
    the body below the strings curves towards the back of the guitar.
    I have never hit the pick guard while playing, so there is no reason why I would hit the wood underneath once the pick guard has been removed.

    Tonally there is no difference with or without.

    I just had to laugh a little about "another" pick guard question.

    I have em both ways. If it came with it on I leave it.

    If it didn't, I don't put it on.

    I never touch that area of a guitar regardless.

    And I top wrap too! :lol:

    I only asked because I had never heard there was a difference if you took the pick guard off. so I thought I would ask to see if there was a difference.

    I have never taken mine off either. but as I said, the colour of my current guitar is so much better looking than any of my others.

    I guess if you want a guitar without the pick guard, you can ask for one to be made without the pick guard fitted so there won't be any screw holes on the body.

    I may be walking in to another laugh at my expense, but what is top wrapping?
