Playing a bunch of strats lately and I was wondering if anyone liked the strat bridge pickup by itself? I used a jamman by digitech and recorded a little rhythm part and used the bridge pickup to solo over it. I really liked the singing nature of the pickup and it just jumped in front of the rhythm beautifully. I can only imagine it would be better in a full band mix but I know they are generally not liked. At least that is what it seems like. I've tried a few different sets of strat pups and never liked one that was not overwound (in the bridge). In the lower output sets I have liked (69s and SSL1s), I never really used the bridge pickup, this is the first time really trying to get a good tone from it and it was pretty easy. I like it a lot... I think.
