I am trying to get my jazz guitar sound. Yes I know it should be in my finger, so I am working on it. I am also aware about my pick, my stings, my instrument, the amp, its settings etc.
So this question is mainly about my neck pickup sound. It sounds a bit like a bridge pickup for me.
- Instrument: Ibanez AM 93
- Neck pickup: Factory Super 58 Custom, according to Ibanez specification.
- String: D'Addario Chromes Flat Wound, Light, 12-52 (well 12 is not typical light for high E but anyway, that's the name)
- Pick: The most not bridge-y I've found after carefully examining and playing with all jazz picks: Dunlop Jazz III the smallest red. Some of the picks has a bit richer and mellow sound, but with the more of this bridge-y (nasal) color.
- I am picking as close to the neck as I can, I mean close to the neck pickup but not above it.
- Amp: Fender Mustang V2, using the most classic jazz setting, like Fender Twin Reverb, Treble 1-2, Middle 8-9, Bass 2-3, minimal reverb almost dry.
- Guitar setting: Switched to neck pickup, volume almost max, tone almost zero, or minimal more, I like my E, A, D, G string's sound more if I have some tone more than zero.
Any suggestion how to get the rid of that nasal bridge pickup like sound?

Here is a sound sample
