When i play guitar i always have the volume and tone nobs up to ten, and i always have the bridge pickup selected. is that bad? what is the neck pickup used for? i know its good for legato and stuff.
Neck Pickup is good for rhythm guitar. It's not "bad" to have tone turned all the way up, but change it up, you may like the way it sounds. Just because it's all the way up doesn't mean you get the best tone.
neck pickup usually makes solos sound creamier and thicker, especially when you play all the way up the neck.
