On the fifth try, I finally found a Stat Ive been able to take to. Its a recent deluxe with S/S/S pickups. Ive always felt Strat bridge pickups are too squacky and nasal, more so in the higher strings. I dont want to switch to a humbucker as I think it will kill the dynamics. Has anyone tried a pickguard with a different bridge pickup position. Maybe reversed so the pickup is under the high strings farther from the bridge? If so, does this smooth out the tone? Any other suggestions?
