I just saw Bartolinis referred to as unforgiving(of poor technique:my middle name). I'm somewhat familiar w/Bart tone, & agree w/this opinion. Given this, what would you consider a 'forgiving' pickup or PU/pre setup- in other words, what's at the opposite end of the spectrum? Also, how do wood combinations apply to this question? I'm more interested in the PU side of the issue so I hope this belongs here.
