Leo Fender’s Tone Secret – Paramagnetism

Leo Fender discovered that using metal shielding, i.e; metal control covers and pickguards, reduced the hum associated with his single coil pickups.

When Leo started Fender Musical Instruments, he was using the single coil pickups he developed for the lap steels, but now he was putting it in a new guitar called the Telecaster. Later he developed new versions of the single coil pickup for the Stratocaster, P-Bass and Jazzmaster guitars, to name a few.

In 1957-58, Leo used an aluminum pick guard on the Stratocaster, Precision Bass, Jazzmaster, Mando-caster (Mandolin), and Duo-Sonic guitars. The tone that those guitars could generate is legendary! Today builders and players are seeking the Holy Grail of the tone that those guitars could produce, the womanly bluesy tone as some call it.
