Neat video. Better than having to read a 1300pg physics paper.
The video came up in my feed last night, so I watched it. It won't change the minds of the "HOW THICK IS THE FINISH?" types unfortunately, but I'm feeling damn good about my axes right about now.Pickups. Mainly the fingers, but pickups.
I could hand Steve Vai one of my budget axes and my Katana, and after a little fiddling - he'd sound like Steve Vai.
I noticed that too many factors determine the tone of a guitar.
To me, here are the factors that I notice changes or affects the tone.
• thickness of the electrical wire used .
As a gag / to prove a point, I wired up my SG with that 70's style gold vinyl insulated lamp cord, "traditional" push back, and finally super fine strand silicone insulated 20 AWG. Same guitar, same amp / settings, same buddy playing it who had no idea what I had done. Same sound.
