I'm playing on a G&L tribute legacy, I understand the tonality differences (as in highest up position is a much creamier/fatty tone and farthest down is much more bright), but I'm not sure which positions actually activate which pickups.

I am guessing the pickup closest to the neck is what creates the brighter sound?

Can anyone clear this up?

Thanks.

Other way around, neck position is the creamier/fatter (and sometimes muddy with chords) and the bridge is brighter.

warmer sound is from the neck pickup.
brighter is from the bridge.

try playing unplugged real quick, pick over the neck pickup (just a reference point). now do the exact same thing except playing over the bridge pickup or a little closer to the bridge. hear the difference?

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"
