    If you are interested I shot a video comparing a Lollar Charlie Christian compared to a 2006 American standard. I like this neck pickup quite a bit for jazz type stuff. Some original jazz type things I try to play

    I'm honestly surprised how similar they sound. Not exactly alike, but close enough to perhaps convince people that routing and buying a new pickguard isn't needed when you got a tone control.

    Yes I agree. You can hear a difference when playing - but most of it is that the Lollar is louder...I have long ago decided that there is no real better pickup or guitar just differences that are really pretty small. I tend to like whatever guitar I played last.

    Nice to see this comparison! There are some ugly overtones or something starting at 0:34 for a few seconds. What is that? Not the Lollar I hope. Is it something in the room buzzing? The Tele pickup didn't seem to do it.
