    Spoiler

    They all sound almost exactly the same lol......minor amp adjustments would easily negate any perceived differences

    I've got Lollar Regals in my Roadworn Tele Deluxe, I like them. The video, through my computer speakers, didn't reveal any significant differences in tone between any of them. There might be a different result through higher fidelity speakers, or in the room

    I just quickly listened on my phone. I thought the Lollars (third set on the video) sounded closest to the 70's Fender and those two sounded the best to me. I mean they all sounded good but the 70's Fender and the Lollars seemed to have just a bit more going on.

    Good video, thanks for sharing.

    Obviously these are all in the same ballpark, but I definitely noticed a difference. The Fenders sounding a little different and better than the others.

    I'm water skiing right now so I really can't watch the videos,
    so basically they all sound very similar??

    this is not an answer, it a quagmire, so many pickups so little time.

    listening to the different pickups via youtube might not really provide a good place to seek sonic subtleties, and from what I heard via youtube I could not pick a single pickup as sounding good, goodest, better , betterest, much gooderest-o_O
    I liked them all under the circumstances equally.
    I have a strat with 2 Dimarzio hum canceling Area 58 and an Area 61 in the bridge and when I played through my Iridium I heard a sweet sweet strat sound that I had never heard before except on recordings I think this is something to keep in consideration : 1) which guitar, 2) which pickup, 3)which amp, 4) which speaker/speakers.
    :rolleyes:

    in hifi headphones the differences are still minimal, but I totally agree with..

    I didn't look, and every time my ears pricked up, it was either the 70s Fenders or the Lollar low output,

    I'd love to hear how they compare to the vintage Maxons.

    Thanks for posting ping. I would have liked to have heard the WRHB RIs in that group with that amp etc. I have those and really like them for what they are. I would also like a set of CuNiFes at some point. I followed Telenator's amazing journey in recreating those. They all sound similar in the video but the Fender's just have a bit more sparkle to my ears.

    They all sound good. Now I’ve got to learn “Black” by Pearl Jam.

    My opinion
    1. 70's Fender
    2. 20' Fender
    3. Lollar
    4. Creamery

    Differences between the first 3 were very slight. The Creamery pickup was the brightest toned pickup of the group and was more noticeable between it and the 70's Fender.
    I think the aged pickup scenario is in play between the 70's Fender and 20' Fender/Lollar.
