    Middle pickup is my home base. Perfect balance of punch and glass.
    I used to rarely stray from it, but I recently acquired an original 1965 Strat, and it has the most beautiful balance between all pickups. I now use the neck and bridge a fair amount as well but the biggest surprise is the middle/bridge. It has the most incredible quack of any Strat I’ve played, without the squawk and harshness you can get from some modern Strats. It’s a 3 way switch, so I can’t switch to that sound “on the fly”, but man it’s killer for rhythm ala Steve Miller, and also for Knopfler stuff…

    That seems a rather personal question for a public forum :)

    There's the bucking bronco too.

    Any position you like, then when she starts to, um, express her enjoyment, bend forward and quietly say...

    "Wow! You sister likes it this way too."

    Then see how long you can stay on.
