Can somebody give me some information about pickup positions relative to the neck and bridge. If I was to add two humbuckers, would it matter if the neck humbucker wasn't directly below the neck?

Edit: Also from the neck what distance would something like a hardtail have to be?

The distance a neck is from a hardtail depends on the scale length. I say set all saddles to half way and them measure from there.

As for pickup placing, there's some technique involving harmonic nodes n' stuff....but a lot of people have told me you can just stick it anywhere. It's just that for bridge position you need a more powerful pickup, as the strings don't vibrate as much (this caused problems up to the 50's, before people realised that)

Thanks for the replies, what would the best bridge for two hums? I really do like TOM but I think the more work with the neck/pocket angles would probably cause problems.
