What would happen if I put my pickups in upside down?
Are pickups made to correspond to the frequencies of the strings or are they just "microphones"?

Just curious....

well, pickups are in fact magnets, so the ones for the bottom strings are (i think) a bit stronger, so as you'd put them in upside down, you'd get a bassier tone.

I'm not sure, I could be off by about 1000%, it's just my guess...
