Replacing humbucker screws w/ alnico rods
I have one of SK's dualbuckers, and like it a lot. Since I like single coil AND humbucking sounds, I'm playing around with some old pickups to get a similar effect - I'm just replacing the screws in some alnico5 powered humbuckers with alnico5 rods. My question is, does it affect the magnetic field if the rods touch the underlying magnet vs. if they don't? In a couple of informal tests I couldn't notice a difference, but I have no way to measure this - it's just by ear.
