There's no such thing as a head pickup?

Man, Guitar-and-blowjob class really messed up my education.

Maybe you're the educated one and we're all just uninformed.

I'm guessing you meant bridge?

The highest (lowest?) setting. I dunno, I thought it was called head pickup.

There's just neck, middle, and bridge. Unless you have a Rick Nielson guitar:

You must mean the bridge pickup, as in the pickup closest to the bridge. Tongue

Okay okay okay okay let me just rephrase what I meant:

I have a 5-option switch. For rock rhythm, I go bridge whatever is closest to the bottom of the body. For funk or blues, I go neck to the option that is right in the middle. For rock solos, I either go neck or head closest or second-to-closest to the fretboard.

Also, Rick Nielsen is insane. In a good sense.

I know next to nothing about musical gear '-_-

*facepalm* Joel, the middle pickup is in the middle, and the neck pickup is the one closest to the neck. And the bridge pickup is closest to the bridge. These names couldn't possibly be any more logical.

I got that. But I have 5 options, so I always thought the second option was called the "neck/head" pickup and the first one was just "head". Just like how the fourth option would be "neck/bridge" or something. For some reason I thought the positions represented a part of the guitar. "Middle" just wasn't part of my lexicon, lol.















shu'up -_-
