Bridge Pickup In The Neck Position

Devon Headen

Recommended Posts

I've never tried putting a bridge pickup in the neck and I have two bridge pickups I want to use in the same guitar (SD '59 and Pearly Gates). What are the downsides to doing this? I know I'll have to turn the neck position pickup around to get the screw polepieces towards the neck. With this have a negative effect on tone?

You ought to be able to do it without much problem at all, and I think that you will just need to adjust the height of the neck pickup to make the volumes of both pickups similar. If I remember correctly, a neck pickup is less sensitive to vibrations is all, because the string will move farther back and forth near the neck pickup than it will by the bridge...
