    Interesting you say that...I have found myself leaving the neck pickup split most of the time on the 408 Brazzy, whereas I leave it in full bucker on my Siggy. To my ears, the added low end from the rosewood overpowers some of the roundness of the bridge pickup - so for bluesy type soloing when you dig in, the split position brings it out more.

    My Siggy is a more midrangey, aggressive sound, so on full bucker the neck really blooms and gives you that sound.

    Neck split bridge full middle position is my favorite on both guitars. What a great system.

    BTW that top is gorgeous, butterscotch AND chocolate congrats!

    Very nice, Brad! I just got my 408 Brazilian last week, too. I'd have to agree with you that it's all about the Brazilian neck and pickups. I picked up an Orange Tiger quilt top trem with pattern neck carve and I love it! The wide-fat neck carve is my favorite as well but the patten carve is really close. Congrats, man!
