Hey... nothing to do with gratitude. Your advice was wrong. End of. I'm not going to be grateful for incorrect advice.

That doesn't mean I'm not grateful for your time and effort though, I am grateful for your time and effort. Which is why my post contained no foul language, no pissy bitching, no insults - just fact. I know that you were taking time to try to help me, that I am thankful for.

My response wasn't to be a dick, it was to help you correct your understanding.

You claimed that modellers inhibit feedback, which isn't true. I said to go research the subject before spreading that same fallacy. Then you call me a brat.

Pretty clear to me who is being the brat.

Now it is end of.

Hi all..don't know if you managed to sort the lack of feedback prob Acolmiztli ?, but I had a similar thing happen when I fitted a new set of Nailbombs to my Ibanez RGT42 a couple of weeks back.
I thought I was being clever and doing a great job of eliminating any possibility of mains or RF interference by lining the pickup and control cavities with that expensive thick copper tape that axes r us sell.
The Nailbombs sounded ok but had a peculiar "boxy" sound to them with very little sustain or harmonic content even after lots of amp tweaking.
A call to Tim sorted it out straight away..."take out all the sheilding and try it again".
Did as he said and its a totally different guitar......the total tonal dogs bollocks....way better than I even hoped the Nailbombs would make it sound.....and feedback...just whack it up and pinch away  8)
So check if the "guitar tech" put any sheilding in the pickup cavities....if so..take it out.  :idea:

Normally shielding should not inhibit picking up pinch harmonics too much, unless it is done wrong, or is somehow creating some kind of capacitance in the circuit.

Some players find a difference between a covered humbucker and an open coil one and have a preference as a result.

However the Nailbomb is a dark pickup and harmonics may not seem as prevalent as they might with a pickup like a Miracle Man.

Hmmm....I have open coiled Nailbombs and whatever the science of it, removing the copper sheilding had a very pronounced effect on the overall tone, sustain and harmonic richness. Where as before the main component of a note was the percussive thump of the pick hitting the string, now there is a full, rich sounding note that sustains for ages even at low gain settings.

Interesting ...... guess it can have a more serious effect in some cases!

I agree with whatever works as long as it doesn't have a bad side to it

in situations where i want nice harmonic feedback i use a compressor pedal to encourage it.
