Re: Pickguard noise
Believe it or not, I just had a friend come over, and he was doing the same thing through my Tele's. I just wiped the pickguard with a Bounce sheet, and it eradicated the problem. Kinda made it sticky, but we rubbed it with a towel, and that took the sticky off, and still worked. PLUS, your guitar now smells spring-fresh.

This is a great post, I have had this problem for decades and just put up with it. It happens with every pickup mount pickguard guitar I have ever owned. I just assumed it was my electrifying riffs (HAHAHAHACHOKE) Actually, I have really dry skin which probably makes it worse. Thanks for the tips!

I will try the foil due to a alergy to fabric softners. Thanks again for all the input.

You know, those little pink spongey pads you put in the drier. Rub your pickguard down with one. Use as needed. I have the same problem here in Colorado. Dry air?

You can use bounce or you can wax your pickguard. I used Kyser Dr Stringfellow wax on mine and the static stays gone for months. The bounce is a good fix in a pinch.

In a pinch I've rubbed the pickguard down with FastFret.

I've used eyeglass cleaner that I get from my optometrist for years. It is anti-static and cleans at the same time. Works for me. Mark
