Re: Jem555BK Pickup Problems
When you think about it, the single on a jem has to give those stratty tones when used with the coil tapped humbuckers. This means that it would need to be about half as loud as the humbuckers! Therefore position 2 and 4 sound great but 3 is a bit weak.
You could raise the pickup, but to get it loud enough I suspect you'll find that either the tone suffers due to the increased magnetic field interfering with the string vibration, or, it will get in the way of your picking. *Most* people feel that the single on it's own isn't very useful (and I'd agree), infact I'm thinking of changing that selection to both humbuckers or something. I love positions 2 and 4 though.
