I kind of disagree in that I heard very substantial difference. I put the audio through my studio monitors and got a couple good listens. Again without question the new Lemon is the clear winner of the 3 guitars. It sounded the best overall and nailed the VH sound the best. The Epiphone was not far off but those pups didn’t do the VH tones as authentic as the 61 bucker. I was surprised that the black cherry HP in that particular demo came in last place. I know a lot of people detest that very common pup combo and others love them but I think I really had a good experience there in why some people dislike them. I have at least a few guitars with them too including my LP Custom. I feel like in person they they sound good for heavy rock tones for me here at home so maybe its a case where they just don’t record well or weren’t getting along with the effects applied to them but in your demo they sounded somewhat flat and not as lively as the 61 buckers to my ears. But no question I felt like I heard very noticeable differences in the VH demo you did which your videos are very good BTWWell, in the post above for the Comparison of Gibson Pickups in different guitars, I could not hear much of a difference. I know I created the video and posted it, but I did not have a chance until just a little bit ago, to really go through it and see if I could hear the differences. I really did not hear a difference that really stood out showcasing one pickup being better or really different than the other. All guitars have the same strings and size of strings.
I picked up some NYXL's for the new Gibson, but did not put them on yet. I wanted to get a good comparison first and then change the strings and see if I can hear a difference with the new NYXL's from D'addario.
