Is This the Best Classic Electric Guitar Pickup Shootout Video on YouTube?

Is This the Best Classic Electric Guitar Pickup Shootout Video on YouTube?

The gang over at Reverb have come up with what might be the best pickup-shootout video on YouTube.

Single coil vs. humbucker, gold foil vs. lipstick—Reverb lets the pickups do all the work (and they even include some off-the-beaten-path axes, including a Gretsch Power Jet, a Rickenbacker 335 and a new Supro Westbury).

All you need to do is click on the interactive buttons for A/B comparisons of 13 of guitardom's most classic pickups.

Everything is played through a Victoria 45410 Bassman-style amp (good stuff, folks), and the settings never change.

At this point, my words are useless. Watch the video!
