    How do you find the bridge pickup for cleans and what do you use it for?

    '57 classics are impressing me!

    Well ive just been stuffing around with recording a big comparing my new stock 137 to my jackson with JB's in bridge and neck(JBJr), and the 57 classics actually sound really great! I mean it might be the guitar itself, no doubt in fact, but ive been playing it on a pretty heavy distorted setting of my pod and its sounded really fat! When i get something proper recorded ill post it.

    But im considering an eventual swap for perhaps something like a pearly gates bridge....im after a nice crunchy pickup in the bridge that can do a lot of things like your more jazzy/latin/funky stuff, so not something for heavy distortions. Think ozomatli's guitar tone, if that helps.
Working...
