Hey all this is a two parter I figure I put it here because you guys might deal with these things a little more regularly. PART 1 I'm putting some strap buttons in a Warmoth build but can't decide where to put them. It has a geddy neck with hipshots so I'm not too worried about neck dive per se but I want to be as preventative as possible because perfect balance is pretty much why I built this. I was thinking of doing non traditional button placement. I already have the greatest strap known to mortals so that's covered The upper horn seems a little narrow at the tip and if the neck does point in a 45 degrees or greater position I feel like it would be at greater risk of being pulled out. I read some posts about putting the button on the back of the neck heel where one of the bolts are but I wear my bass kind of high so wouldn't that be poking me in the stomach? Would moving the bridge button up a few inches on the body and the horn button down a few inches closer to the neck be a viable solution to this? PART 2 I've been thinking about a future build I'd like to try my hand at and was thinking about placing the pickups in such a way that I wouldn't get uber growl or woof when switching the pickup selector pot from center position, but instead got a more gentle coloring of the centered tone. Would placing the pickups closer together achieve this? And how close together would you place them?
