Side-by-side comparison of Gibson's present two flagship pickups, the '57 Classic and Burstbucker Pro. The '57 Classics are in a 2001-made Gibson ES-335; the Burstbuckers are in a 2011-made Gibson Les Paul '08 Standard. Both played through a Marhsall AVT150 Valvestate head, with settings as shown in the vid.

Clean channel playing first, distortion/overdive/hi-gain after.

Realise that in the ideal world a properly scientific test would be to try the two types of pickup in exactly the same guitar - obviously some of the difference in tone will be attributable to the fact that the 335 is a semi-acoustic, the Les Paul has a longer neck tenon etc etc, but this is the fairest test I could do with the apparatus at my disposal ;)
