    Heres a two for one. I have an esquire that im auditioning pickups for. I wanted to make a recording so i could maybe compare them a bit better.

    It started with a Fralin stock pickup. I just put a Lollar special in it. The Fralin is a good 60s style pickup while the Lollar sounds very much like a nocaster.

    The recording is done with an sm57 in exactly the same spot on the AC15 which is being boosted a bit on the normal channel with a prince of tone and a bit of reverb. Vol is slightly rolled off on both pickups

    Im not sure how well the difference comes across in the recording. Maybe should have kept a drier signal. But in hands the difference is very stark. Not sure which i like better

    Excuse the blues noodling, you gotta pay me for better playing!

    Firstly, l like your bold blues style, wish you played longer.

    I liked the Loller more.
    Nice comparison.

    I got around to using the first position (bypass tone) with the lollar and now ive been taken off the fence. Thats something. Wheras the Fralin is a bit thinner in the bypass, less usable.

    Im also getting a cavalier nocaster pickup. It is even hotter yet than the Lollar. Maybe ill start off 2020 with another comparison

    Thanks guitarsophist, those were Benson type of octaves, there is a 4th in there. Just move the shape around horizontally on just those three strings while tracking the B Aeolian or B minor pent on the 1st string. Thumb sounds best. =)

    Bm7 Aeolian or minor pent
    -7--9-10--12--14
    -5--7--8---10--12
    -4--6--7----9---11- etc

    You can just let it breathe with a sound like that!

    I really love the intro especially.

    @Buffalo0993, you win the challenge by putting together very compelling lead lines with great tone in under 2:00 minute presentations. Well done sir!

    Here's mine, now that I'm done with work for the year. Tried out a new amp with this one, a Hotone Siva Boogie. In spite of the name, it's 'inspired' by the Bogner Shiva. I used the Hotone Binary IR Cab's Bogner Shiva IR with it. The guitar is my Mosrite JR style kit, neck mini-HB. The first 1:15 adds in a MXR Sugar Drive. At 1:15, I drop the Sugar Drive and kick in a Vox Trike octave fuzz. At 2:20, the fuzz is replaced by a Deadbeat Modulation Station's auto-wah. And, at 3:40 to the end, it's just the amp.

    @beagle : you played it straight and down to earth with the right amount of silence between the notes; I like especially that you played a lot in the deeper registers. Hatfield is right about bringing up the guitar a little, especially in the second half.
    @Raimonds : greetings to latvia! I appreciate it that constantly recurrent drop in. I always liked how combine slow playing with high speed lines.
    @knh555 : congrats on the Deco; Strymon makes astonishing stuff! The synergy between the two guitars is astonishing; very good stuff!

    @Buffalo0993 : welcome here, I hope we will hear more from you! I couldn´t decide which pickup sounds better.
    @bgmacaw : as you know, I use different sounds within a track quite often, and so I appreciate it that you did so, too. Being no fan of fuzz in general, I liked the fuzz you used; it has a haunting quality.
