I'm building a guitar kit (ML with a Floyd rose).I have blackouts ahb-2 bridge and the ahb-1 neck in a les paul and love them.
What I'm thinking about doing with the ML is a ahb-2 in the bridge and a ahb-1 bridge in the neck position so I can really destroy what is left of my hearing,even tho that Judas priest-Iron maiden concert back in 82 took care of that already..
Anybody ever do what I'm thinking?
Bridge pickup in neck position is a great idea.
I had this in my main Warmoth for a while, and I think it sounded great.
It was a couple of Starstruck custom made pickups, both were ordered as bridge pickups intially but I ended up putting one of them in the neck position.
Actually, it sounds VERY close to a Duncan Distortion, but better in my opininion... I recorded them (in bridge position that is) right after each other and almost no difference, except my had a little cleaner sound. I changed to another pickup too, and that was drastic change in tone.
So if a Duncan Distortion works in neck position anything should!
