Post Thoughts on direct mount versus pickguard mount pickups?
Guys,

Just wanted to see what your thoughts were as far as having guitars with direct mount vs. pickguard mounted pickups. My understanding is that direct mounted PU's tend to allow for more sustain. Do you have any idea how/if one or the other has any effect on tonal response of the wood? For instance, I have a basswood guitar that has pickguard mounted HSH setup. If I had the identical guitar with direct mounted pickups, what could I expect tonally?

Thanks,
Jeff
