THe closer the pickup configuration is to a strat, the more of that sound you'll have, but in a strat type guitar, I don't think it matters if you have a P90 instead of a typical strat single coil - it won't be exactly the same, but close, close.
Not entirely true, if they're wound in the same direction the in-between position will louder and stronger, as opposed to kind of phasey.
But isn't reverse-wired middle pickups on strats something fairly new? I had one a few years ago where they were wound in the same direction and I'd say that was very close to the classic Stratocaster sound.
Hmm, so it is. I guess it's probably a combination of things then. I just think it's interesting that a tele doesn't have that sound, but a jazzmaster does- maybe the mismatched pickups on a tele?
