Take a look at this video:-

When Carlos plays his first passage at 0:33, I notice little harmonics jumping out here and there. They can be heard whenever he plays.

It sounds like the neck pickup but those harmonics and the liveliness the sound has makes me think otherwise. Harmonics don't usually pop out when using the neck pickup alone. Usually the harmonics are heard from the bridge pickup.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

This might be a dumb question but I was wondering how they jump out like that? Is it the sound of a neck and bridge pickup combined? (middle position). It sounds like the neck pickup but those harmonics and the liveliness the sound has makes me think otherwise. Harmonics don't usually pop out when using the neck pickup alone. Usually the sound is quite flat.

Anyone have any ideas?

that's a fair amount of presence,with a GREAT amp. it's almost completely in the amp when it comes to harmonic-rich sound.

hes just doing some slight pinch harmonics. hes on the neck pickup the whole time though, and again, alot of it is the amp and pickups when it comes to harmonics. but the other part of it there is his tone and style.

Thanks for the help guys. I've never heard harmonics like that from a neck pickup though, even with awesome amps.
