Wow, I was positive #1 was chambered!
Nice test... what if the chambered body also had an f-hole, like the thinline tele?
Definitely sounds like more chime on the chambered.
I say #1 is the solid and #2 hollow because #1 has more highs and less lows and #2 has less highs and more lows. That's the typical characteristics between the two. That's why an acoustic upright bass sounds like booming thunder compared to a solid body electric bass.
Not much difference between both. Honestly only take away chambered is lighter.
But I am verry happy to see, people questioning and testing the "old wives tales" of guitars.
Truth be told, once you throw a distortion pedal in the mix, none of this matters.
That was pretty close , only on the bridge pickup I couldn't hear a different
Totally agree with your summing up ! Minimal difference, and I guessed the wrong way round! I agree also that the differences between woods - in the other video with the 3 wood types - was much more obvious. Very interesting!
The differences are so subtle that it will never matter to your audience. Get the lighter guitar and last longer on stage without a backache. Easy decision.
I preferred the solid body overdriven and the chambered body clean. Great test, thanks!
I scrolled up so I couldn't see when you made the seamless transition. I've been plating for just over 50 years now and to be honest, I couldn't tell the difference. If there is one, it's insignificant, and the fact that I can get the sound I'm looking for from my amp tells me that I'd rather have a body that weighs a pound less. Thanks for the great vid
I don't care whether the chambered body was #1 or #2, I'd take the lighter one. The difference in sound is not important to me.
I could guess which guitar was solid because it had more sustain and fuller and warmer tone
Chambered body sounded warmer and smoother with chords. Solid body had a bit more bite. Wondering what the difference between thinline and chambered are
I think the neck effects the sound most,body really doesn’t matter
Great comparison! I didn’t think there was much difference. I agree with you the chambered guitar had a slight emphasis on the higher notes. On the whole there would probably be a 3% difference in tone.
Best comparison videos ever !
