Top best answers to the question «What happens if you put a neck pickup in the bridge»

If you use the exact same pickup in the neck and bridge positions, then the bridge may sound thin and weak compared to the neck, or the neck may sound dark and too loud… If you're looking for a lower output, brighter pickup for a bridge position, then a “neck” pickup might do the job perfectly.

If a pickup is specifically wound or calibrated for the bridge position it may have more turns of magnet to increase the output for that position. If a pickup is wound hotter for the bridge, it can have more volume and fullness but can sound to dark or fat sounding in the neck position.
