    Single coil noise on a live stage is a fact of life that tele players ignore, try to minimize, or maybe even find charming, but in a studio it can drive you insane.

    Still, I can't think of any recordings--even analog recordings--where pickup noise in the final product is really problematic. Any suggestions for great studio recordings where single coil pickup noise is obvious?

    You can hear a bit of amp hum in SRV's version of Little Wing if you crank it up during the quiet parts of the song.

    Red Red Wine by the Replacements. It's on the Pleased to Meet Me album. Paul likes his P-90s.

    There's some in Jeff Beck's 'Goodbye Pork Pie Hat' from 'Wired', appropriately enough.
