UV neck pickup REALLY thin! help!
Ok so a I may buy my buddy's UV for $1000, pristine. Also comes with that nice case. Hes lettin me borrow it, and Ive been playin it for hours now, and Im taking a break. The bridge pickup screams...the middle single coil is amazing on clean...this entire guitar is perfect. EXCEPT!! What the hell is the neck pickups problem? I was expecting that beautiful "For the love of god" tone...but the thing sounds like a single coil! It and it in the coil tap position are nearly the same...and probly my favorite thing in the world to do on a guitar is to switch on the neck pup and do some petrucciesque speed picking...but damn this thing is THIN. It doesnt pick up on pick attack at all. The pickup coils all have a TINY bit of oxidation on them, but other than that, like I said, this axe is perfect. Can anyone explain this, or does anyone have the same problems, or would maybe an Air Norton 7 fix my problem? Thanks dudes!
