This is great video/audio demonstration to contrast the two. really well done, thank you! I just upgraded my pick-ups in my McCarty from the stock McCarty Pick-ups to 57/08s with the following outcomes: 1. the output seems noticeably louder, and have the pick-ups backed further away. like .125" - .120" 2. the middle position has substantial volume loss, seems like a phase cancellation issue? anyone else have similar experience?
