Yes, this is bad advise. It probably will destroy the crystal.
Trying to get a 45 or 60 degree phase shift at the input to the pi network is a
myth. A simple SPICE analysis shows there is little or no phase shift across the
series resistor. The pi network is at resonance and is almost purely resistive.
Even when a phase shift is introduced at the output of the inverter, the crystal
maintains a 180 degree phase shift across the pi network. See
The Johnson noise of the series resistor is attenuated by the voltage divider
formed by the series resistance and the input impedance of the pi network. It is
small compared to the phase noise contributed by the inverter and the crystal
