    I am not a fan of the in-between positions and all my strats are wired like the originals - with the three way switch. Of the three positions, I find the middle to be the most overall pleasing for my overall tone, with the bridge and neck being great for "color".

    I like them all, especially the middle but lately I have gravitated to the bridge with the tone control rolled back a bit.

    I never use the bridge on a strat unless it is a humbucker. It's either a shrill sound to me or too jangly country twangy. Neck all the way. Basically neck, neck and middle, or middle. The last 2 (or first depending on how you look at it) are not used.

    I use them all, but seldom the middle position on a Strat. It sounds good, it's just never as interesting, sorta like he neck pup on a tele. It's always been kinda "meh" to me.

    Doggie?

    All depends on the guitar/rig/song/vibe.

    Depends on the guitar. For most Fenders, I like the neck only, but will occasionally use the 4th (neck/middle) on a Strat. The exception is a Tele, where I usually only use bridge.

    EDIT: LOL, I got some wires crossed in my brain and voted bridge instead of neck. I ruined the poll. :doh:

    My love/hate for the Strat continues as I proceed to build a HSS MIM.. I simply can not be ok with my only Strat being anything but HHH. Unfortunately I hate every setting but for Neck and Middle/Neck unless it has a humbucker in the bridge. New build, problem solved.

    4 & 2, which I always thought were 2 & 4 until I was recently corrected.
    Who counts from right to left ???

    The bridge with a lot fiddling with the tone control

    I like the middle position as well

    I experiment more when I'm plugged into the amp though....

    Neck and middle, position 4, is where I spend a lot of time on a Strat.
    Either that or just the neck, I don't use the bridge pup very often at all on a Strat, unless it's a humbucker.
