I was checking out the Strandberg guitars from another post and it occurred to me that every guitar manufacturer promotes their pickups, but I have no idea what they sound like. I understand the basics like H-S-H, active/passive, and coil-tapping but apart from that, words like fat or smooth don't mean much to me as they relate to pickups. At least when they describe woods I have a little better sense of what they might sound or feel like. How do you compare pickups from different guitars unless you're able to play them? I'd be interested in any thoughts. Thanks
