    What is the speciality of a Humbucker pickup?
    in a normal strat model there will be 3 single coil pickups
    What will be the advantage if we place a humbucker in the place of a single coil?

    there are two types of pickups

    1) single coil

    2) humbuker (double coil)

    single coil as we good how ever a litle noise is produced.

    so in order to remove that noise . In a humbuker pickup we have two single coil pickups inverted repectively to each other and it reduced a lot of noise. :)
