VIDEO GEAR REVIEW: I put a Lace Matchbook pickup in the WORST cigar box guitar!

HAHAHA!  I put a $70 Lace Alumitone Matchbook pickup in a $25 cigar box guitar!   This has to be the most unfair gear review ever!  This was my version of a Mythbusters challenge where the gnarliest equipment was used for maximum results...

    Cute pickup; well suited to CBG but there are some fine pickups out there for next to nothing, that fit the CBG philosophy better. I love these @ 2/$17: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Chrome-Mini-Humbucker-Pickup-Sealed-for-Electric-Guitar-Parts-Replacement/152783634761?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 Dead quiet, warm and pretty; with a bite. Many other vendors but this is the best price today.
