Could I get some opinions on whether these two recordings sound different? They're from older and newer (for me) piezo pickups on a Peavey EXP ACM custom. I think there's a clear difference, and I've got a strong preference, but I just wanted to make sure it wasn't all in my head.

Please excuse the dodgy playing - I'm learning. Recorded straight into HiZ input of Edirol FA101.
