Re: 540R HSH pick hitting single
Ok, well I did a bit of analyzing. I am hitting it on the big strumming strokes, not so much on precision picked stuff. I have been changing back and forth between standard size picks and the jazz III ultex's I had been using.
Lately, I have been writing less shred stuff and more chord work stuff and more bigger pick stuff hence why I am noticing the problem more and more.
I wholeheartedly agree that my picking stroke needs some work. Gonna have to break out the paul gilbert stuff again. I could see the inefficiency in it as the pick dropped down and hit the pickup.
Frank: Keep in touch, if I cant get past this with that mid pickup, it just may be on the block. I love my 540RHH (nio single, no problem, just not as nice as the JB). My first guitar was a 540R HSS. I remember hitting that mid pickup too!!! Thought about picking up a LP Studio for my rhythm stuff which would mean I would have to sell one of them.
Thanks guys, I'll keep trying.
