Probably un-doable at two levels, first to get agreement on criteria, then to get people to play along, but here goes: Every time I read this pickup forum, I become only more confused about how pickup A,B and C compare, and the more posts, the more complex the number of descriptors. In short it serves to confuse more than clarify my possible choices. The result is always analysis paralysis, and I don't make the leap to plunk down cash to try a darn thing. So my proposal: Can we come up with a review system, keep it to a relatively small/reasonable amount of specific criteria, perhaps impedance, then 5 things that can be subjectively quantified 1-5, plus comments? Open to other ways to accomplish similar, say a leading question with several bulleted choices as answers, or even just fill in the blanks with your own description of the particular criteria A consistent format would sure help me. How can we define a set of criteria?
