    Question firebird pickups in strat body?

    is it possible? i know it wouldn't sound the same but would it sound good with a maple neck and fingerboard and an alder body?
    mainly the duncan antiquity 2

    Oneof the best sounding Strats I ever played had a Firebird pickup in the bridge...it sounded great...the number 4 position was not Strat like at all and neither was the bridge but for a good sounding Strat it was a killer! Firebird pickups have blades under the covers so string spacing is no problem either!
    If you just read a post by The Guy Who Invented Fire please understand that opinions change, mind sets change and as players our ears mature...not to mention our needs grow and change. With that in mind, today I may or may not agree with the post you just read!

    Joe Walsh played a strat with a mini 'bucker at the bridge. It sounded great IMHO.
