Question for you BLUES/SLIDE players.  I am thinking of getting a FAT guitar; one with both humbucker and single coil pickups, for the best of both worlds.  Which is the best set-up for BLUES/SLIDE playing; having the humbucker in the bridge, single coil at the neck or vice versa.  Thanks in advance!!!

Pie :Of course this is a loaded question with alot of variables.Id go with the h/s/s/ config, That way if you want fat you can use the bucker and if you want more twang the neck pup.You will also have the 4 position middle/neck for less noise(if the middle is rwrp) which it should be.Also you will have the 3rd position for a different tone and 2 position for a bucker plus single kinda sound .Yep you should be covered[:D]
