pick up location and effect on tone?


Recommended Posts

Just found this site and it looks like a good place for my question(s)

I am building a custom guitar after amassing all kinds of parts .

The body I am using is a semi-hollowbody made from routed out mahogany with a maple top . The body is routed for humbucker pick ups (bridge and neck) .

I purchased a set of humbucker pick ups along with a set of modern vintage wound Rickenbacker pick ups . I am planning to route the pick up slots to accomodate either pick up but was curious if I should make the slot for the bridge pick up as close to the bridge as possible or will this cause interferance problems with that pick up?
