Jimi Hendrix played his strat upside down, not only because he didn't give a **** because he's the mother ****in' Jimi Hendrix, but he also stated he liked how it sounded when the bridge pickup was flipped.

I think it was to stop the lower strings being too raspy sounding whilst keeping the snappy high end response to the higher strings.

^yeah, i know someone who bought a cheap lefty strat just to get the different tone from the bridge pickup because he just prefers it that way.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

also, for passive pickups, it allows them to be more sensitive and have higher output cos of the magnet nd wire...
and hendrix played upside down cos he was a lefty and there were no lefty guitars

there were lefty guitars, they were just hard to come by. Clapton found him a left handed strat but he never received it because he died.

Why would there be an advantage when talking about a purely subjective matter: tone?


On topic:
Try it, see if you like it.

yep, pretty much. basically the closer the pickup is to the bridge, the brighter it'll sound, the closer to the neck the warmer/mellower, so the angled pickup makes the treble strings sound a little brighter than the bass strings...

also on 80s guitars like that bc rich it just makes things look kinda more 80s and badass...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
