I have a Squier 70s thinline tele I’ve been debating on putting filtertrons in, and then remembered I have an old set of blacktops in my parts. My question is, looking at pickguards made for filtertrons for that style guitar, it seems like they all do wood mount for the height adjustment screws. On my blacktops this metal plate is still attached from the Gretsch they came out of. Is that able to just be removed without affecting the pickup’s function or tone?
