my pickup is "soft".....


Recommended Posts

hello! I have a problem with my 2010 faded sg ....

I have a very loud neck pickup that has to be in 6 or 7 position to level with "a softer" bridge pickup.... I tested the resistance with a multimeter one is 7.6 and the other 7.4 but the volume at the neck is really low. if I touch gently with a screwdriver both the coils are active (2 wire pickups with gibson 2 wire pcb).

Where do you think is the problem? one is too loud or the other wich is broken?

You say the neck pup is loud and then you say the neck pup volume is low. Which is it?

however I disconnected the quick connector on the pcb, inverted the pickups and electronics and they sound ok....reverse to normal everything and now they are ok......
