Teahead Posted November 4, 2003 Share Posted November 4, 2003 I mean your pickup positions of course! Before I confess my own, I know we all move between pickup selections whilst playing, in the never ending quest for textures, tones and all that. However, I do always feel better represented when playing through my neck pickup position, on both my Tele and Les Paul. I dislike the bridge position the most on each. I'm not sure why, maybe the bright bridge tone highlights my faults as a player. I do use it, to cut through the mix, but far prefer my comfortable neck p'up, and it's easier to explain why. I just love how it sound more "wooden" than the "metallic" bridge, much more full and rounded in tone. This was not always the way, I used to be exclusively a bridge man, in my early bedroom years. Only in the last year or so of regular gigging have I changed my preference. So, do you too secretly favour one pickup selection over any other? If you do, what influences your preference? Has it always been this way? Or have you changed your approach? Best Wishes, Tea. Pedal Clips Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
