Yes, but I try to explain that the Stratocaster became successful by
some musicians, e.g. Jimi Hendrix and I'm sure every guitarist would
notice, if Hendrix would play a Flying V, the guitar Hendrix preferred,
but never or seldom used on recordings. If you would make an ABX test
people wouldn't notice differences that are audible, even if those
differences are different instruments. Btw. it's not always possible to
hear the difference between a single coil and a humbucker, but for the
averaged Hendrix sound it would be noticeable.
What I want to point out is, that those tests are null and void, people
without experiences don't listen to single instrument lines, so they
won't notice missing early reflections for a hi hat or something
similar, caused by a codec. Experienced people will hear a difference.

Yes, it's the second sentence :D
