So this is a guitar pickup question but I figured someone ought to know the answer. So, telecaster bridge pickups traditionally have copper plated steel base plates, to which the pickup is grounded, yes? Some replacement telecaster pickups don't have them, such as the Dimarzio area t. Is there any reason why you couldn't add one of these plates to a Dimarzio area t bridge pickup (and that means the ground needs to re-soldered to the steel plate, right?)? I realize that the steel plate has a definite electrical function/effect on the pickups and its field, etc... so I'm curious why the area t doesn't have a steel base plate and what would happen if I did add one. Thanks, any input is appreciated.
