Mickguard Posted October 16, 2005 Report Share Posted October 16, 2005 I'm trying to fit a metal pickguard over a P90 --the P90 doesn't have its cover --I've drilled holes in the guard for the P90's poles. It looks great. But. The P90 doesn't seem at all compatible --the entire pickguard starts sounding like a pickup --and the pickup sounds like crap. A huge drop in volume and especially a dramatic loss of tone. The other pickups sound as normal with the pickguard --so why is the P90 incompatible? Better still, what can I do to make it work? I have a piece of copper shielding there. I've tried cutting a piece of plastic to place between the metal and the P90 -- no result. I suppose I could expose the P90 entirely (and replace the cover), but it won't look the same. Anyway, I know that there are chrome covers for P90s --why do they work?
