He gets alot of tonal distinction from bright to dark by simply changing the area at which the pick hits the strings (closer to or farther from the bridge).
Hmmm, may have to contest distance from the bridge. While I'm sure he does that, at times, I believe me more often focused on distance from the pickup he was using.
Gotta go with Pete on this one- it's the differing string tensions relative to the bridge that are the reason I move the picking up and down the strings.

fwiw, I just used the bridge as a reference point.
As a test of your own, just plug in and play while moving your picking hand from on top of the upper frets and work back to the bridge.
A notable tonal difference will occur.
Then do it for all your different pickup selections.
Now we're talking tonal pallett.
Spread those gossamer wings and fly, bay-bee!
