Its kinda frustrating when im trying to play, say master of puppets, and i keep switching back and forth repeating the intro because i cant decide >.<

So, which pickup do you guys use for distortion?

For metallica, I use the Bridge pickup 100% of the time.

Anything else, I use the bridge for rhythms because it's more articulated and percussive, while the neck is smooth and liquidy to make solos not so punishing to the ears.

try this:

- Bridge: Distortion
- Both: Fat Leads/Good Cleans
- Neck: Nice Mellow Cleans

When Im playing the chugachuga Ill use the bridge... the neck gets too muddy without turning the tone knob all the way up. Even then the bridge pickup is clearer for that stuff.
86% of the people who frequent the "Electric Guitar" forum would say that they have played guitar for under 5 years.

You're playing metal, it's either the bridge, or headbanging and pretending to play.


I use the neck prominent solos
