1 Strummerson 4 months ago I've been agonizing and obsessing over which pickup to install in my telecaster project. (The bridge pickup is a Peter Florance te59.) I've listened to hours of clips, read up a bunch, had discussions with people. And I still can't decide. I really want a CAR, but can't quite justify the money at the moment. I have a hollowbody with TArmonds, so looking for something different. Considering, among others, a Lollar staple pickup. True, it's supposed to be nearly identical in design under the hood to a Dynasonic, but when I listen to clips I hear, or at least I think I hear a distinction. But that got me thinking about how well my ears discern different pickups. I'm wondering how confident people are in their ability to pass a blind test. How many of you think you could tell the difference between say, a P90, a FilterTron, a vintage wound PAF, a Dynasonic, a lipstick, a vintage wound strat pickup, and a HiLoTron played in the same guitar with the same amp all with the same settings? To make it tougher, how many of you think you could tell the tone of all TVJ's filters (Classic, Classic plus, Setzer sig, Full Fidelity, SuperTron, and DuoTron) in the same guitar, amp, and settings?
