the neck pickup is the pickup closted to the end of the neck, the bridge pickup is closet to the bridge/trem

with a 5 way you would have it the furthest position pointing towards the neck (cant think of another way to explain)

The neck pickup is the pickup closest to the neck of the guitar, in your case this will be a single coil and moving the switch all the way to the left (I think) Should select it. The Bridge is the opposite one, it's the one closest to the bridge which in your case is the humbucker and moving the switch all the way to the right should select it

how long have u been playing?
a neck pickup is the one near the neck
the bridge pickup is the one near the bridge
if you have a five way selector then theres a middle pickup too. thats called the middle pickup.
neck is for rythym, bridge is for lead.
This is what you get.

The neck pickup is the one closest to the neck of the guitar (a single coil on yours) and putting the switch on the setting furthest to your left when playing it, so it points towards the neck, activates the neck pickup. The single coil in the middle is called, unsurprisingly, the mid pickup. Bridge pickup (the humbucker) is the one next to the bridge.

The positions of the switch and the relative pickups they activate are as follows:
In the first position (all the way to the left, pointing towards the neck) : Neck pickup
Second position: Neck and Mid combined
Third position (pointing straight up): Mid pickup
Fourth position: Mid and Bridge combined
Fith position (all the way to the right): Bridge pickup

This information should be correct if you're playing a right-handed guitar. Otherwise the selecter switch points to the right when set to the neck position, and to the left when set to the bridge position. Hope that helps.

I'm pretty shure it's the opposite, isn't it?
