    I am home sick today and it's finals week...so naturally I had nothing better to do. I decided to A/B both of my guitars today with a riff that I just wrote and used the same exact plugs/settings on all tracks, even the settings on my amp didn't change.

    Let me know what you think good or bad.

    Well, I'm partial to the sound of single coils or a strat in the 2 or 4 position. That being said, why not use both? Different textures can build your tone though I think for this type of music the V sounds more "right".

    I agree, I noticed that the Fender is more noisy, and has more high frequency garble. It's also got a humbucker, so it's got more output than a single coil Fender. I was also impressed by the Jackson, as it seems not very "wow" sounding live, and sometimes lacks definition. But it seems to have come over in the recording quite well. I was actually thinking of popping in a different pickup.
