      Aesthetically they fail. I am normally a form over function guy. I have an hh strat and I love it. But the 2 singles look effeminate. I hate myself for being so shallow.

          How is having a tele-style setup (two singles, one angled, one not) on a strat effeminate looking?

            2 pickup Strat? Actually, this is more of a Strat bodied Tele.

              I agree. For me, a Strat looks best with 3 single coils. I can deal with HSS and HH, too, but they seem off to me. And the two single-coils looks way off.

                those actually look very cool to me.

                  And with cover:





                  I'd like to do a 1 pickup Strat some day with just a neck pickup, but only bc I have a dozen Strats and it would just be something different. Great thing is it just costs you the cost of a custom pick guard (about $25 from Warmoth?) and your time (to remove parts from old pick guard and wire up the new one.). Same with a 2 pickup setup - if you have a 3 pickup Strat already, you already have either the RWRP middle pickup or neck pickup to use, and all the other parts you need. Just unsolder, transfer, and resolder everything. If you have time. That's one thing I'm short on these days.

                          use a 5 way superswitch to put the pickups in parallel modes in the 2 and 4 positions. Super-Vee blade runner bridge. Very fun guitar.

                                I've seen this mod done before and wonder at its utility. Not that the Strat can't be a great, versatile guitar with only two pups (and here I'm talking about two single coils--not a double 'bucker "fat" Strat.)



                                On the recent "Let's see your #1s" thread, at post #116, a forumite named J-E-M shows a pic of his one and only electric, which is a gorgeous creamy Strat with a flat finish beige/black/beige pickguard and just the neck and bridge single coils. He said it covered all the bases he needs a guitar for.



                                I think Robbie Robertson (of The Band) also had a cople of Strats set up this way.



                                Has anyone done this, or played a Strat with this configuration? It seems cool, but I also wonder what would get lost in the process and what the benefits--if any--would be for doing this, aside from fewer pickup selections.

                                Yeah, you loose those inbetween sounds. I simply grew tired of the quack sound, and I never used the mid pu on its own (and sometimes it would get in the way of aggressive picking); so I put together a strat with a pickup config with no redundancy and annoyance - so bye bye mid pickup.
