Optimum Pickup Location


New member
Hi folks. I'm in the process of overhauling a Fender Lead I for my nephew. The Lead I only had the bridge pickup but the body was routed for a single coil in the neck position. He wants a humbucker neck pickup and I was wondering if there is certain distance from the nut or bridge that is best for the location of the lateral centerline of this pickup. For the bridge pickup, I just used the same centerline as the old pickup. Any info would be appreciated before I fire up the router. None of my guitars have two humbuckers. Maybe someone with a 25½ scale guitar and two humbuckers could give me the center to center  or nut to center measurement of the two pickups?
