ES-335: Classic 57 problem (?)


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

This is my first post in this forum!


I have a Gibson ES335 with Classic 57 pickups.


I have set the height of my 2 pickups so that they have equal output. But if I adjust the EQ of my amp in order to have a good tone from my neck pickup, the bridge sounds too trebly and harsh. In contrast, if I adjust the amp in order to have a good sound on the bridge pickup, then the neck pickup sounds too "boomy".


Am I doing something wrong?

Is there any chance that my two pickups could be mismatched or have a problem?


Thanks in advance,
