Re: Response Effects of Guitar Pickup Position and Width

Re: Response Effects of Guitar Pickup Position and Width
Luijo,  
 
Just take the fret position chart and divide the offset from the nut by 4. The result will be the offset from the neck pickup.  
 
There are several fret position tables tabulated in Excel on the net. If you have office its easy to get the sweetspots.  
 
Trivia question for those who can be bothered to work it out:  
 
If the neck pickup of a strat is under the sweetspot of the open string, then which fretted notes' sweetspot is the middle pickup under? And do those notes sound sweeter? If they do sound sweeter, how come you never noticed before?  
 
Things that make you go "hmm":)  
 
Andrew C.
