marty D Does a pickguard impede sound of guitar? (36) Does a pickguard impede sound of guitar? 06 Mar 02

At first I wasn't going to ask this because it seemed stupid, but the more I thought about it, it seemed legitimate.

Maybe not the small thin pickguard on my Martin, but what about some of those big jobs on Framus guitars or even Gibsons? I've even seen a Gibson where the pickguard was SCREWED into the guitar. Any reason why a company would put something heavy on the top of a guitar? Is it JUST decoration?
