The Jr is stock, the PRS has a Duncan Vintage P90.

I'm really getting into single-pickup guitars... These sound pretty close, the PRS is brighter.

Interesting comparison. Thanks for sharing. They are in the same ballpark, but the Gibson seems to have more punch, bottom end, and clarity, but that's just how it sounds coming from my computer.

You're correct. That's pretty much it. The PRS can get there with a bit of EQ'ing. The Gibson though, damn, it's freakin' awesome.

The LP Jr sounds good to me. Now WHY didn't I keep this? :bonk

I'm curious how much a pickup upgrade would affect that?
My SE sounds pretty good acoustically and the Duncans weren't catching it. They're in a box somewhere around here...But having owned and played many Juniors thru the years I just don't think an SE has the wood to bring the punch and bottom. It's still good to me but a different thing.

Not to derail but what Z and speakers are you using? I agree the Gibson sounds fatter and the SE is brighter. Both good though IMO.

Interesting. The PRS guitars that I'ved played were always dark sounding. Nice A/B demo!
