A Strat has its bridge pickup angled like this / - l - l (bridge, middle, neck). This means the E, A, D polepieces are closer to the neck and the G, B, E are closer to the bridge. Is this to:

A - Make the low strings sound more "trebley" and the high strings more "bassy"

or

B - Make the low strings sound more "bassy" and the high strings more "trebley"


THANKS

given that the bridge is considered more 'trebley', and used more for soloing, and that the neck is considered more 'bassy', and used more for rhythm, I would go more with 'B'. this is just my opinion. so not necessarily correct.

I could be wrong, but I thought Leo Fender angled the bridge pickup to make the low strings have more bass and the high ones more treble, because there were no bass guitars at the time so guitarists needed to cover more ground
