To me, Jonas Brothers sound identical to Dragonforce. So I'm not sure what you've just proved.

It is for tone. The closer the pup is to the bridge the brighter the tone. The bridge pup is slanted so that the high strings will be a bit brighter than the lower strings.

Some think they should be slanted the other way to keep the bridge from being so harsh and to help it be a bit more balanced. Hendrix's were obviously that way since he played a righty Strat strung upside down (as SRV sorta copied) and I believe Buddy Guy actually flipped his on purpose.

Yeah I have to agree with what you said. I think that the bridge pup on a strat should be straight because of the harshness but at the time they were developed overdrive and distortion weren't in use so it was less noticible.

yngwie uses a Dimarzio HS-3 in the bridge and a Dimarzio YJM in the neck. he does not use the middle pickup at all

Though his other question is viable, is the YJM a humbucker in a single-coil casing or a specially winded true single-coil.

I believe the neck and middle are single coils and the bridge is a stacked humbucker. Basically a Fat Strat.

the hs-3 and yjm are both "stack" humbuckers
