    Yeah, I haven’t. Since this post was posted, I’ve changed my plan of attack on my custom shop (if you will) strat. I haven’t been looking for tele pickups because humbuckers are just easier to find, and I’ll just do an HH layout instead.

    ... I have played since I was 15 (50 years) and owned all sorts of ordinary guitars (not electric 12-strings, or jazz guitars). Humbuckers nowadays can fit most any need.... even bridge HB that can be coil split (4 signal wires on it) to be very close to a Telecaster or Strat bridge tone. Don't assume HBs are only for metal or Slash or AC/DC

    My dopey way of saying "The neck pickup is only good for position 2"

    Ok. FWIW, RWRP is a new thing.

    The middle position has only been both pickups since '67. Leo thought combining the pickups was a gimmick. :)
