I guess it's the fat strats that have a humbucker in the bridge position. I own a les paul so I'm not too clear on this, but isnt the bridge position where a pickup will make more trebley sounds and the neck where a pickup will produce bassier sounds? So wouldnt it make sense to put the humbucker on a fat strat in the neck position where it will play it's strengths? Can anyone explain this?

Unless it's because people like the sound when the pickups get mixed together...? Any concrete answers?

It's because you get more biting and aggressive distortion in the bridge, with a humbucker. Yes, it's more trebley in the bridge position, but in the neck position, you don't have that same bit or aggressive top end.

Plus, people live in the neck single coil for a Strat, for cleans. Sounds amazing.



That and it would be blasphemous to get rid of the single coil in the neck.


I have a fat strat, and the pup selector almost never leaves the neck position.


edit: i cant reed or rite. wut he said!
