I'm getting an EMG 81 installed in the bridge of my Godin Freeway, I never use the switch really and it always stays in the lead position, so the person at the shop recommend I just get a single 81 installed in the bridge and never mind about the neck pickup. Am I really not to getting to notice a difference as If I were to get, say, an 85 in the neck aswell? Keeping in mind I never touch the switch.
If you leave the switch in the bridge position whatever is in the neck is going to make zero difference.
Plus now you have a nice killswitch
Of course if you also buy a 85 you can always put that in the bridge and see if you like it. But if the reason for not buying one is to save money than disregard my statement
