We've heard it so many times: single pickup guitars sound better and have a longer sustain.
I love single pickup guitars, I really do. I'm not sure if it's more about limiting yourself to one pickup that appeals to me, or if they really sound better.
Let's find it out! :)
As part of my Guitar Tweakz series I started making these Guitar Myth-busting videos. This is the second one, I hope you like it!
