    Who insulted you? Is it an insult to surmise your writings and show you your discrepancies?

    CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG but this what he is saying

    Dylan talks tone says from 3:50 to 4:15 time

    The Taller the coil height around the Pole Pieces = LESS inductance
    The smaller of the coil surface area around the Pole Pieces = LESS inductance
    The LESS coil turns lower DC impedance = LESS inductance

    What I know of Seymour Duncan is that he is a hands-on kind of guy when he is experimenting with tone. My guess is that he has tried many different metals for bridge plates and saddles for a telecaster. I have a tele bridge that I believe is something Seymour Duncan experimented with made of brass, unplated, and is mounted on my favorite Warmoth tele build and it sounds fabulous. I would imagine he has tried stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, titanium, etc. Remember, this is the guy who makes pickups using pure silver wire in his' Zephyr pickups.

    Would my tone improve with metal strings rather than steel strings?

    .........and silver wire isn't cheap. Some of those who have the cash and can afford it will flaunt it. I'm not saying I can afford it, although the methodology makes sense.

    I think at some point whoever is monitoring the chatbot will realize the cover is blown. That may have happened already. Not knowing whether steel is metal--even a dull child knows that. A troll wouldn't pick something so silly to pretend not to understand, and a non-native speaker could easily look it up. Has to be AI.

    But the video doesn't say that seymour duncan used bronze, alumimum, titanium

    He is saying remove the stainless steel bridge plate its wrong

    213 freakin' posts on this since Tuesday eve., and still no resolution....LMAO...

    Congratulations Randyphillips...you are the ring-master of this circus. Will we see 300 by days end ? You need to create a few more "hoops" to jump through. Do Metal vs. non-metal switch tips effect tone ? You should migrate this topic to a YouTube video, where "clicks" (replies) earn you money.

    Pics or it didn't happen.

    Seriously Randy. That doesn't even make sense. Please show pics of Seymour Duncan mounted on a Warmoth Tele. I don't believe you.

    Jimi Hendrix mounting a Stratocaster, we all know that happened. Seymour? Nah.

    Watch this video at 27:00 they say that when they switched the steel telecaster plate to a metal telecaster plate not the saddles, the BRIDGE PLATE that the pickup mounts on a telecaster has to be METAL Seymour Duncan is saying to get that Roy Buchannan tones

    Randy, what's your favorite Roy Buchanan album? Do you listen to it on LP, CD, or some other format? What kind of speakers do you use when you listen to Roy Buchanan?
