I am the cat who walks by himself
I might be a bit weird but I have never liked the sound of neck pickups (especially humbuckers).
They sound sort of ok for cleans but when someone uses the neck pickup to play solos I find it very unpleasant to listen to. I hardly play on the neck pickup on any guitar I own and have yet to find a neck pickup that I like the sound of.
Does anyone else not like the sound of neck pickups or am I the only one?
