    The word on the street is that "tone is in the fingers." I hate that aspect as I took a bad fall on my fretting hand a couple of years ago. I cannot dig into the strings as I had before, which bites in the sense of playing with a decent tone. I have found that using Lace Gold pickups on a '94 Stratocaster Deluxe mid/bridge offers a satisfactory tone through a Fender Princeton (non-reverb). With my personal condition, the tone is fairly bearable.

    As far as a Squire is concerned....mid position, with alnico V's (stock) on a Telecaster Thinline CV.

    That sucks, man... I lost the use of my middle finger when I cut the flexor tendon about 9 years ago... Thank God I loved it too much to quit... I'm better now than I ever was with all my fingers...

    I'll take the middle position on this thing. Strange combo of a duo tron and a DeArmond humbucker, but it works for me. ;-) 20181212_091934.jpg

    It 's a tough call but I'll say the neck position in my EVH Wolfgang Standard. It's full, clear and doesn't get muddy when you turn up the gain.

    Huge fan of middle/bridge on my hardtail Strat with 67/62’s.
    All my Les Pauls are bridge only and different array of pickups. I stick around 8.1K and 9.2K output on my humbuckers.

    It’s a tie between 2 bridge pickups in Teles. Either the Broadcaster in my Baja 50s, or the ‘62 Custom Telecaster in my Classic Vibe 50s.

    For me it's the custom wound "wide range" style neck pup (in a humbucker-sized package) from Rose Pickups in my 72 Tele Custom build - articulate and powerful.

    Right now, it's a Seymour Duncan Super Distortion in in the bridge position of a single humbucker Squier Bullet.

    For years and years and years I preferred the sound of the neck pickup in any guitar. I still do in my ASAT and every Stratocaster I’ve played.
    Funny you should ask this question though, because just a couple weeks ago I decided that my favorite tone at the moment of all my guitars is the tone from the vintage noiseless bridge pickup in my Deluxe Nashville Telecaster. It just has that bite that sounds so good clean or dirty.

    Kinda tough one. Right now I'd say neck/middle on Std Squier with Tex Specials. Other times I'd say same position on Protone. Depends on mood!
