  1. I totally thought that too at first. Haha. I’ve got some good suggestions on here to look at. Thanks for the help.
  2. Thanks for the insight. I’ll keep this in mind!
  3. Thanks for the suggestion. If all else fails I might give this a shot. I feel like having the pole pieces slightly closer to the bridge will brighten up this already bright guitar. So I'm hoping adjusting the legs and/or spring will resolve instead. If not, I'll try turning the pickup around and see what happens. Thanks!
  4. If the poles are technically angled, how would that not affect tone? I know it would be minor, but it should still slightly affect tone. I will definitely experiment with the spring and the legs and see if that helps resolve the issue. Thanks for the insight!
  5. I guess I don't understand how this fixes the issue. My problem isn't that the pickup is falling forward on its own. When I tighten or loosen the pickup height adjustment screws, only that one side of the pickup moves. The side with the poles always stays at the same spot. I'll be taking a closer look when I change strings next, but was hoping that someone had identified the exact reason that this happens if it is so common. Any other ideas? I'll post what I find out once I take stuff apart.
  6. As the attached picture shows, when I try to lower my neck pickup, only the side opposite the poles lowers. So really the poles never adjust unless I were to lower the individual poles. Anyone else have this issue? If so, how did you fix it?
  7. Thanks for your response! I did some research on the pickups that come on my guitar, and pretty much just tweaked tone on amp and guitar as well as really dialed in the pickup height and pole pieces and have been able to get the sound I was looking for. I've got a good clean tone now and a good overdrive tone right out of the amp. Can't say the other digital effects will be used though. They definitely seem a bit weak.
  8. Hey! I'm new to this forum, and new owner of a beautiful Les Paul. Unfortunately...I didn't do much research prior to buying my amp. Ended up with a Marshall MG30FX Gold. I'm struggling getting my LP to sound great through it, but still playing around with tones. I'm hoping to land that perfect blend of bass, mids, and treble so I can at least get a great sounding clean channel prior to loading up with pedals. Glad to join the forum here...if anyone has some tips on making this amp sound better (other than destroying it, or abandoning it for a new one), send them my way! I sold my old V
