And from the sound of things, so is a sharp B string as well. All in all, I reckon this is one of those "if it ain't broke..." kinda things that may not be all that necessary for most of us, but just the same it's always interesting to see how folks aren't quite done with ol' Leo & Co.'s 'flawed designs'.

Didn't watch the video, but on my oscilloscope "waveform isn't as jaggy" = fewer harmonic overtones. So the trick is to convert the energy in harmonic overtones to increased sustain and resonance? While changing the tone by changing the balance of overtones to fundamental?

Those remind me, nearly every Korean session bassist I know has at least a few of these; 5-stringers especially seem to use them in an attempt to keep the flabby harmonics of the low B in check [/HeadstockDive&MoreBackTroubleRichardIII]

Ah, so then you need the BackBone to weigh down the other end and stop the dive...

If you put all of that extra metal shit on your guitar, you'll end up with scoliosis yourself.

the tech i go to has something like this on his wall of fame. a customer's dc junior sounded too thin and had no sustain, so he routed out a gap under the pickguard and stuck too massive brass blocks in it to help ~sustain~ and ~resonance~. he's an engineer or something. i don't understand brass to be honest - if you put a brass trem block in a strat it sounds like shit. i think people assume its a great material because church bells and horns are made out of it. but if you made those same things out of steel they'd blow your fucking head off.

anyway, he still does good work apart from that.

Sounds like it just adds a little top and bottom end.

Totally worth it, seeing as we have no way of altering these kind of things NO WAIT

This idea appeals, if nothing else it would probably help with the annoying balance on most SGs.
