Not at all. And I’m not arguing. I’m just expressing my opinion that, without knowing a lot more about how these were recorded, and knowing that one guitar had A3 and the other A5, one cannot reasonably ascribe the difference in sound between these two recordings to the height of the G pole piece.
Fair enough but as with anything wouldn’t you admit that it is all the small pieces that make up the whole. Like a good recipe - sometimes it is the most subtle secret ingredient that makes the difference in the flavor.
What the clip demonstrates IMHO is that there is a huge difference in tone between the two types of pickups. By dismissing the clip straight away you are by default making an argument about its credibility.
If someone makes really great cookies and says here try these cookies the secret ingredient is this certain type of baking soda - and the other person says but it is impossible to taste the difference in the baking soda so it can’t be the secret ingredient. But the baker knows that it is the baking soda that makes the difference.
With something as elusive as Jerry’s Alligator tone it seems to me that all the small
Pieces are important in making up the whole.
That was what I was trying to demonstrate with the clips. Listening to the clips is like doing the final taste test on the cookies.
What I am saying is why would one change the recipe on award winning cookies?
What you seem to be saying is that it is not even worth trying the cookies because you can’t taste the baking soda and because they were not baked in the same oven etc.
