I know this is common to the point of being cliche but Ive never quite gotten it when *I* use the neck for leads I dont get that slightly warmer but still cutting sound from your favorite commercial release, I get a kind of tubby bassy sound that just doesn’t scream. I know you generally use the neck for notes higher up the neck on the thinner strings and the bridge for the lower notes/thicker strings, but even so I still dont get the scream. It sounds ok but not really close to your Slashes or an 80s metal guys or whoever else uses neck for leads. I suppose I could tweak an amp for the perfect lead tone on neck (extra treble, less bass etc) but then it seems like youre compromising your whole sound for a lead tone. Fine if youre recording but how would this work live? I dont know if its down to amp (marshall dsl40c) or guitars/pickups (LP Standard with JB/jazz or 2017 SG with —I think— 57 classics) but I feel like these things should be able to achieve at least a decent neck lead tone. Maybe its a boost/screamer pedal thing Ive never messed with? I usually just go with bridge and shrug at the thinness and unnecessary/unpleasant treble Thoughts?
