Hi, sorry if this is a common/dumb question, but is there any issues with running a pickup designed for the bridge position in the neck position? I just picked up an epiphone dot studio and have a bridge position seymour duncan invader that I would like to replace the stock neck pickup with. Thanks

bridge pickups usually have a higher output than neck pickups because the strings vibrate less at the bridge position

thats about as much as i can tell you
i guess it would work though
it wont sound the same as in the bridge position though

Whodicted

Sometimes guitars need to have a shorter feet on the pickups bassplate when in the neck position. This is the only issue you might run into, but it's not that big of a deal. If the pickup fits into the gutiar it will work. Hendriko is right about the higher output of the bridge pickups. It doesn't hurt anything to have a higher output, it just makes the pickup louder and loweres the resonant peak.
Not taking any online orders.

Actually,I have a Superdistortion type humbucker that supposed to go in the bridge,but I putted it in the neck,and it actually sounds quite nice.

if you have the volume at the same level for both pups
it would

thats when a guitar with 2 volume knobs comes in handy
