Brief video using clean and distorted channels on a Blackstar ID:TVP260 amplifier in order to highlight the sounds of PRS 57/08 and 59/09 pickups for different pickup positions. Tone knob on full for the 57/08s but only at 60% for the 59/09s. This was an oversight on my part - I often do it to get closer to the 57/08 sound.... I aim to rectify this soon.

This is my first "real" video using a dedicated camera and editing software, so bear with me and hopefully the videos improve with time.

Orange guitar features the 57/08 pickups.
Purple guitar features 59/09 pickups.

In practice (and at a volume I wouldn't dare record at here) the 59/09 pickups are "hotter" - there is more output/drive from them, and they appear to feature a little more treble. Both pickups sound excellent - check out more clips on my website:
