I was playing around with the old strat last night, eating away on some stupid noodles, when I found myself doing a lot of “24th fret” harmonics on the 22 fretter. Noticing that the natural harmonic falls directly over the bobbins on the neck pickup, I wonder if this was done on purpose. Did Leo place the neck pickup in this precise position on purpose and if so, is that why the neck pup is so magical on strats? This position is an iconic sound and I wonder if it just happened to work out that way or if Leo was really just THAT good.
