    I don't remember if I posted the A/B comparison I did of a Texas Special neck and a Custom '69 neck around here, but it was entirely clean, so someone asked me to do a video of the '69 with some gain. I've got an Area '67 in the mail to compare this to so I'll have another video up in a few days I suspect, but while this is awfully low output it's also pretty sweet sounding.

    Very nice Drew! I'm a big fan of the Fat 50's and Custom 69. They both compare pretty nicely against the 58 and 67 Areas respectively.

    Personally I prefer the slightly fatter 58 in the neck and the relaxed mids of the 67 in the mid position, but the 67 (and CS 69 by proxy) certainly sounds very nice in the neck position too!

    Nice playing as always!

    Thanks man! I'll let you know what I think of the '67 when it shows up.
