  • JB in the neck?

    what does it sound like and will it balance with a custom in the bridge?
    i dont want the neck tone to be too syrupy loose,but i want it to be tight fat and still have some single coil bite if that makes sense

    I'm trying to get my hands on one, soon...

    It seems like it would have a decent clean sound, since the sound in the bridge is so bloody amazing.

    The answer is always "burn it, dumbass."

      thats what i was thinking everyone says to try a jazz, but i want more fat to the tone in the neck like a air norton type of thing and the jb might be good?

        I play a JB in the neck and its terrific. I have a JB jr in the neck of my strat, and actually a buddy of mine used to play his custom guitars with a custom in the bridge and JB in the neck. (mostly thrash/metal) It sounds awesome. Great harmonics, great sustain, just a beatiful sounding pick up. It sounds great clean too, although it can be a bit loud (cause its calibrated for the bridge) But you can mitigate this by either lowering the pick up or just lowering the volume a bit. Its not a big deal to me. I also have the adjustable pole pieces toward the bridge side instead of the neck side. I did this mainly because I didn't want the Duncan logo upside down, but I think someone here said that kind of helps lower the output a bit too. I'd recommend trying it, I think you'll like it.

          from zerb..
          the JB in the neck will sound quite oposite as it does in the bridge.. dark, smooth and a lot fatter. when split it does that good ol' strat tone very well. you'll have to lower it to balance it out with the custom bridge...

          not a word by word quote but it's close =)

              It sounds huge for those who like that tone.
              Way too fat for me. I like more articulation in the neck.
