    I consider "brittle" as how much 3~5kHz. Low end punch would be how much low end is in the attack.

    TPS = "That Pedal Show" on YT. The results I mentioned in comparing the Callahan's to some...

    I'd think the thin bent Steel saddles would absorb more upper-mids via resonance than thick modern solid saddles. I also suspect more loss of low end compared to thicker saddles, although I don't...

    I would definitely consider swapping a wood body for something like a urethane foam body (of which one guitar I have is made). It has the virtually same damping characteristics as a medium weight...

    I'm pretty sure amplifier driven acoustic feedback is a result of the acoustic vibrations moving the strings directly -- why guitars with open chambers near the strings feedback more, and closing off...

    Yes, it's hard to say if decking to the body damps more high end when you consider wood hardness, or even the finish hardness and thickness. I'm not sure what you are saying about resonance though. ...

    I was convinced that "decking" my S-type trem gave guitars better sustain, but after understanding that what is heard in the sustaining note through the pickups is about minimizing damping, and after...

    Pricey for what it is. I'd think the guitar might hang outwards a bit if not anchored from the top. That may or may not be to your liking.

    I think the reason was to reduce the higher hum harmonics, but the diamagnetic property of Cu (which generates a weak opposing field) damps the resonance and may roll off highs a bit. Cu shielding...

    1100pF puts the resonance of a typical ~2.5H Fender SC with 250k pots up close to the ice picky ~3kHz range. Maybe ~2,6kHz depending on the pickup capacitance. I'd go higher to ~2nF, or much lower...
