    Any way--lots of cools tuff out there online--and while most electrics seem to have either a fender style single coil or a Gibson style humbucker (Or both)--it is cool to see ther variations out there as well--I have both single coil & humbucker--and different types--so that helps give me some nice variety.

    If I get anymore guitars -different types of pickups could play a part.

    I installed a lipstick pickup as the middle position in my (Nashville-wired) Tele so I could get the 2 & 4 positions, which for me are the most appealing & distinctive things about a Srat. Worked pretty well.

    That would be cool.
    I have seen Strats with lipstick pickups as well

    I really would have liked a RWRP version of the neck pup, just for consistency of appearance, The lipstick was the closest i could find. Nashville Teles always look like a Jerry-rig somebody did in their garage. This is at least close.
