Thanks Darius,
It was the bridge pickup in a stock Ibanez RG1570.
The video is HERE if you think it will help.
Thanks for your help, I'll have a play and post back either direct or with a link to a collab. As always, no rush to answer, this is an evolution smile.gif
Cheers buddy

In fact bridge pickup is not a best choice....unless you are Jeff Beck playing with his fingers with a little tone knob adjustment. Otherwise it sounds like RHCP to me smile.gif)) Neck pickup has some really nice phase cancelation of higher midrange and it's much more pleasant to listeners ear. You might want to boost some mids and highs to make it break through the mix but even with that boost it has still nice and round shape/color. Bridge pickup on the clean tone is something you'll usually find in a country music smile.gif

Thanks Darius,

I think I am poisoned by my Les Paul guitars, where it says "Rhythm" and "Treble" on the toggle switch. Made me think all lead work was on the bridge. wink.gif

Cheers, I will continue to experiment over time.

I do like to play solos on bridge pickup bo only on middle or high amount of gain, when tone becomes a little more mellow and compressed. Then pinch harmonics and pal muting works best wink.gif
