Is the reason for guitar "tone suck", i.e. loss of high end frequencies with impedance mismatching, actually due to high reactance?

Yes, or most likely so. We can model the pickup like so: simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab Now, I'm not well versed in guitar pickup design and typical values, but my ...

Is the reason for guitar "tone suck", i.e. loss of high end frequencies with impedance mismatching, actually due to high reactance?

It could be. If you have a long cable, it adds more capacitance, i.e. capacitive reactance. High capacitive reactance means the capacitance shunts current more for high frequencies so impedance is ...
