I’m no expert but that’s what I hear as “burst” sound as well. That video sounds great and has whatever “it” is.
Absolutely correct. Many demos of 'Bursts' deliberately AVOID and IGNORE neck pickup position. Neck position/pickup tone is an ultimate test - cause it reveals in first 5 seconds if the guitar does indeed have the original tone or not . By 'Bursts' I mean all of them - makeovers, conversions, replicas, 'near mint' originals, whichever the guitar pretends it has the original tone but it has not.
