I heard something about making a strat's bridge pickup have a stronger, more punchy tone kinda like a telecaster bridge pickup tone, by placing a piece of metal under the pickup, but i can't remember the finer details. can someone explain this to me if possible?

apologies in advance if this is just an idiotic question, or if it's just a silly idea of mine that i've dreamt about seeing somewhere else or whatever.

I just stuck a metal plate under my pup. Worked fine. I cut a hole about the size of the pickup and stuck it under the pickguard. It doens't have that great of an effect, but kinda adds some edge to the tone.
