Pickups near the bridge give chimey tones, used in most melodies. Having two different bridge pickups widens the range of melody tones. Further, the bridge rails pickup splits into single coil mode. The Rose Mariposa pickup adjacent has a western twang. The rails in the middle gives mellow harmonic distortion and clean tones.
The neck pickup is in reversed phase, giving dynamic harmonic distortion tones when combined with a bridge pickup. It also gives bass-emphasized tones for bass lines. Adjacent to the neck pickup is a single coil pickup with sweet tone alone or combined with bridge pickup. Conrad’s switching design uses two 5-position switches in series to select any single pickup, most pairs, and several threesomes.
