Hiya - I'm a fairly talent free player with a pair of OLP rays - both are the twin pup active versions, one 4 and one 5. MM22 and MM23, IIRC On both of em I find that the neck pickup kinda gets in the way of the path of my fingers when I (try to) play more slap'n'pluck style. I've dropped the neck pickup as low as it will go, and it's helped improve my playing and confidence loads.... but the ouput levels of the two pickups are now hugely different, and so the neck pickup now gets no use at all. So I either need to sort out my technique... or just get the neck pickup moved towards the bridge some to give better clearance. Any glaringly obvious downsides with that plan? I did think about just removing the neck pickup altogether for a more classic 'Ray look, but it seems a shame to do that if I could still use it in the mid position to allow for some alternatives to the super-bright SR bridge pup sounds..... What do ya reckon? Is a neck pickup generally considered to be a bit inconvenient for slap stuff, or am I just being a poorly co-ordinated cretin that can't work out how to steer my fingers around a small black blob that doesn't move? Any advice gratefully recieved (Well, apart from "Give up now, ya hopeless tosser!", I suppose... ) Wasn't sure whether to put this in the technique or setup or luthier forum, so forgive me for dumping it in BG general to save reposting it in all of them.
