Do Aftermarket Pickups Matter Any More?

Fluff has posted a video discussing aftermarket videos:

It’s an interesting look at the history of aftermarket pickups, starting with DiMazio in 1974 and Seymour Duncan in 1976, before launching into a bit of a performance piece questioning whether or not the pickup actually makes a difference or not.

His basic argument is that the pickup is such a small part of the overall tone equation that it basically doesn’t matter which pickup you have in the guitar.

I have my own opinion, which I’ll save for its own series of posts 🙂

Please head over to YouTube to see Fluff make his argument, to leave a like and a supportive comment. Or a non-supportive comment if you disagree with him.
