    Yep, very possible. Be a little concerned about output levels - that means looking at the tone charts and as well as considering raising and lowering pickups, but then that alters the attack, punch, and aggresiveness of the pickup. Just keep your ears open.

    my strat s liek that. It onyl has one hotrail pick up in the bridge the rest are stock pick ups. I dont really find it a problem because i never use two pick ups at the same time anyways im either on the bridge or at the neck pick up. I dont really mind for me even with this random black pick up in the brdge it loosk kidna cool.

    I left the stock neck pup in my stupid Tele and replaced the bridge with a QP Tele. Haven't had any problems. I've done the same with other instruments of mine, also without complaint.

    If it's a different strength pickup, of course it will affect the balance between pickups, but unless there's a big difference it shouldn't matter.

    Replacing only one pickup?

    Is it wrong to only replace one stock pickup in a guitar if you like the other, will it effect the balance between pups? Especially if blending both together I.e in the middle position. Can it stuff up the p ots or wiring?
