    I like neck/bridge so much on my Strats, I incorporated two mods for it: one parallel, one series, both engaged with Tone push/pull knobs. N/B series is my fave ATM.

    Agreed! The strat neck is the tone that made me begin playing guitar. If I could put a Strat neck pickup on any guitar, I probably would.

    Specifically, I love the SSL-1 neck pickup, it is a glorious tone :)

    That being said, I love the Tele single neck, although many prefer a HB - but I notice that if I have the same settings on my amp and lower the treble on my strat neck pickup, it sounds very much like the tele neck pickup with all volumes rolled up!

    All my Strats bridge pups with dirt. Especially my SD STK-S6 (mim Bk Strat) and my Dimarzio Virtual Solo. (mim LBP Strat)

    It's a loaded question....... because I'm switching so often for different parts in each tune. You guys are amazing that you've got a favorite and you can roll with it!

    Playing mostly high gain metal I rarely move from the bridge position.

    I used to need a high(er) gain amp to really get the heavy tone required until the X2N came along. Driven by this pickup in the bridge, virtually any amp above 10W can produce an adequate kick to the gentleman's area.

    I would have said the GFS Mean 90 in neck of my Squier Standard Jagmaster, but that guitar has been disassembled. I'll say the neck pickup in my VM Jazzmaster. I'm not ready to admit what exactly it is, but it works really well for me and my ears.

    For a Strat, middle/bridge (whether it's SSS or HSS). Tele gets the bridge pickup. HH guitar gets the middle position.

    I learned about this pickup from Chuck Schuldiner! It is indeed a kick to the groin for any high gain needs!
