my friend just recently bought an epiphone les paul jr with only the bridge pickup and one volume and one tone control for 130... normally, i could care less for a guitar like that, but my god it sounds amazing, the one bridge pickup packs such a walloping punch, i love it!!

i also saw the Mars Volta live a couple of months ago and I do remember how powerful Omar Rodriguez's tone was on his single pickup guitar

now i'm on the market searching for single pickup guitars and was wondering if the good people here at UG would happen to know any other brands or types of single pickup guitars that i could look into besides les paul jrs and fender esquires
MUST....BUY.....MORE.......PEDALS.....!

Charvel makes a single-humbucker strat w/ a Floyd Rose trem, Jackson makes a Randy Rhoads signature with a single humbucker/Floyd combination, I believe Kramer makes a single-humbucker strat-like guitar as well. Gibson made the ES-140 which was a 3/4 scale single-pickup hollowbody quite a while ago. That's all I can think of off the top of my head

There's the Alexi Laiho sig which my friend has and that is beast, a couple other ESP guitars have them also.

I'm really digging single humbucker guitars at the moment. I want to make my own guitar and that is the path I wanna go down.

Buy a strat or stratlike thing. Buy a blank scratchplate. Cut out a hole for one pickup only. Fit favourite pickup. Reassemble. Job done.

IMO, they are only cool for the extra room in the controls cavity. You can do all kinds of fun things.

Totally agree.....or I was thinking squier makes a 1 pickup bullet strat for 100 bucks still I think...get one of those and swap out the pickup for something alittle better and get it setup and you got a nice guitar for pretty cheap

Why is having a single pickup so great does the lack of a neck pickup somehow improve the sound of the bridge pickup?

I think it’s really more about musicians limiting their hardware and forcing themselves to think outside of any electric guitar gimmicks.
