yea, you were only 5 in 67
pretty sure the simple pleasures was soup
I take mine back cover off of all my Strats.
Personally I think it's all smoke and mirrors.
It has nothing to do with the interaction of the pickups with string vibration.
Acoustically you might hear a differance.
Yeah! Yeah man, you nailed it!
Come to think of it, NAILING it in place instead of screwing might give awesome tone!!!!!
Yeah---nails are a great idea---I'll have to try that. Right now I'm using pan-head brass screws to not attach the cover. I noticed a big difference in my sound------a brassier tone. Also good are flat-head stainless steel screws. A lot of guys think that they mellow the sound---and they look great in the zip-loc bag with the cover.
If you have a squier, put a fender plate you will notice an improvement as well.
I leave the back cover off.
Yep, I leave the back cover off. Sounds better that way.
LMAO!!! Best I've heard in a while!! lol
I leave mine off sometimes, only because I don't wanna pay 10 dollars to get one that matches my pickguard.
i only take mine off to play certain songs that require that tone.
You should not be concerned what your guitar sounds like with the back cover on or off. The only two things I spend time and energy on are having the right pickups and practicing my playing technique. No sense in worrying if a piece of plastic screwed to the back of your guitar changes your tone.
I hear ya. I have a BR-160 that is loud, loud, loud! Great guitars. I've been meaning to get one of their 000 sizes but just haven't yet.
Ok, back to the scheduled thread...
Do you drive around with no hub-caps on your car just because it would make it easier to change a tire?
Missing back plates look like hammered wolf$hit.
And do nothing for sound improvement.
i put a quick release on my backplate so i can quickly remove it or put it back on depending on what tone i am looking for.
Wonder when those mojo-myth stories will die all together...
And people concentrating on finger work instead of "upgrades".
That counts for 100% and all rest... I guess 0 for most mortals.
Meaning some Squier commando guy with several thousands hours of practice under his belt will own any mojo seeker with amateur practice.
He will get nice, warm, open tone and cheap junk will sound like fine few thousand Nitro finished axe.
It's a miracle!
It's not that I don't believe that some of that stuff makes difference... finish, backplate, new/old/type of batteries, cords, color of guitar etc., it's just... well I don't believe I'll live long enough to be able to fully concentrate on that stuff because I won't master guitar playing enough (at least what I want).
...cos I guess there is no much point to put exquisite windows on my new house if I didn't put a roof on it, if ya catch my drift...
This guy owns cos he has leet sustain

I just put my back plate from my american strat on my mim strat and now my mim sounds like an american strat. I swear!!!!!
PS I really do think I hear a difference.
ooh i keep mine on, Im a prude, it would be naked with out it
and stops thos pesky springs from falling out !!!!!!!!!!
I leave mine off because when my trem is decked, the string holes don't line up with the plastic back cover holes..
