I dont know whats wrong with me. So please spare me. Ok. i use picks (I know, I have very bad technique for doing that) and I don't know if this is bad but I've only been playing the bass for about a year, so i'm not the smartest peanut in the terd. So, this may be a stupid question. Get ready. Ok, the pickups are getting scratches on them, like the pickguard would. So is this bad? Is it going to screw me up? Sorry for asking stupid questions. So long.
