Actually, thats not true. He started with them at the same height and then DID make adjustments to the individual pickups so he could get the best sound out of them. (I think he said he spent about 30 minutes with each set doing that). Now....what sounds good to Yeatzee's ears may not sound good to yours or mine. But so far..he seems to have a pretty good ear.While it is a great demo, none of the pickups are even dialed in to where they sound and perform best, just a similar height.
One of the things I was getting at in my earlier post, what sounds good through a microphone and a playback speaker may not sound like you think it will, "in the room."
I don't typically like playing A5 magnet humbuckers, but I'll be damned if they don't usually sound good to me in demos, like really good.
And once you think about all of the variables of dialing in pickup heights and pole pieces, then you can start fiddling with the volume and tone controls.
And it goes on...
