Re: Six output guitar pick-up. Good for

The reason I use a hex pickup in the neck position rather than a
Roland GK-2-type bridge pickup is that I'm driving an octave divider
pedal which bounces octaves less frequently when the signal is coming
from the neck position. I always have the low E and A strings
connected, and the top 4 strings are always connected. So the only
crosstalk that can cause me problems is the D string bleeding heavily
into the A string when I am in split more (octave divider on the lower
2 strings and guitar sound on the top 4).

I agree with Matthias that a bridge-mounted hex pickup is better for
hexaphonic distortion and synth tracking. But a neck-position one is
better for an octave divider effect.
