Hi

I'm having problem laying down guitar tracks lately.
With my tele's and strats, no problem with humbuckers.

When i move my picking hand over the stings you can clearly hear static
through the pickups. It make a lot of tracks unusable !!!

Any idea how to handle that ?

Thx

It's a problem with a certain era Fender pickguard material.

Rub the pickguard with a dryer sheet.

Not kidding.

Does your pinky rest on the pickguard? Happened to me at a session once with a strat so I covered that part of the pickguard with electrical tape. It worked and actually I haven't removed it since. Don't know if it will leave a residue or damage anything so proceed at your own risk.

EDIT: Just saw loudboy's post. Dryer sheet is definitely better than electrical tape! :)

I believe you... the strat is a '72 and the tele's are 72 and 73...

I'll try that, thx !!!

No pinky involve... i'll try both.
Electric tape might look better live than rubbing the
pick guard with dryer sheet in between songs !!! :rotflmao
