  1. Hey, i have a fender active jazz bass and i'm looking to put a steel pickguard on it. Is this a bad idea (not looks sake)? for example, would it effect the pickups at all? what about aluminum? thanks
  2. thats cool. I now know aluminum is fine, but i can get cheap steel where i work so i'm looking to use that. I know aluminum is non magnetic and steel is, so does that make a difference?
  3. The steel pickguard won't bother the pickup any...
    Remember, Fender basses originally had steel pickup covers and they seemed to sound just fine...

    I've made a stainless steel pickguard for an electric guitar and it worked fine.
  4. thanks man, that all i needed to hear :hyper:
