I am experimenting to get a jazz sound on my semi hollow body Ibanez. Of course it involves my hand, the amp and its settings, the pick and the strings. This topic is only about picking.
I found that closer I pick to the neck the sound I achieve I like more. However there is a limit to that direction: the neck pickup. So the question arise: Is it OK to pick over the neck pickup? Obviously it is inconvenient because there is little room for the pick to go under the strings. However maybe practicing lower this issue.
... or this is considered to a bad practice, so I can safely forget it?
