Post PGM question #2
Ok, In Terrifying Guitar Trip why does Paul have tape around the sides of his pickups on the PGM301?

THere have been other artists that have stated why they put tape on the edge of the pickup. It's mostly used with trem bars so the strings don't get caught on the pickups on a heavy dive when the strings go slack.

Pauls main guitar is a PGM300 correct? it's been converted to a hardtail which is now official known as a 301.

Yeah, and you look more pro if you have tape on your pickups. "Check it out man, it's my new tape, now I can play all Vai songs" :D

My friend has put tassels on his guitar many times. He goes down to an arts and crafts store and they have tonnes. He says he feels like doofas everytime hes there but its worth it, it looks so hot.

You might not want to do it on an expensive guitar becuase if you want it to stick, you use hot glue.

One time I cut a shiny green shirt up and made *Fringe* for my bass At church by shaping it up and Using clear Duct tape on the back of the neck to hold it up. Needless to say I got in trouble. The fringe hung down about 1 1/2 foot too.

The tape between neck pickup and body on the underside (a) stops the high E string getting caught due to trem bar stuff and (b) stops them both getting scratched-to-f%&k by picks attached to an electric drill.

And the fringe is quite easy to find with adhesive on the edge... bugger to play with though :)

Why would you get it trouble?
Someone at the church didn't like it?
I bet if you put some more $$$$ in the collection plate they
would be totally fine with it.
