NGD & Pickup question- 1993 Jackson Reverse Dinky Professional
Just got a 93 Reverse Dinky Professional, MIJ. Bridge pickup is a Bill Lawrence USA 500L (not XL).
My question is about the pup configuration. It's H-H with 3-way switch. Currently the middle position appears to be out of phase, it's much lower in volume (like 40% less, by ear) and spanky/quacky. I don't mind it, since I've no real use for the middle position with two humbuckers in series.
The other odd thing (or maybe it's not) is the 500L only measures out at 8.92K. I always thought it was a hot pickup.
The neck pickup is a Jackon 80C, which measures at 14.9K. Since it was originally a bridge pup I'm guessing a previous owner put the 500L in the bridge, thinking it was a hotter pickup, and moved the 80C to the neck. I may reverse them, though it seems weird to have a blade pickup (the 500L) in the neck and not in the bridge.

Reason: More info on neck pickup.
