Re: Problem with single coil pickup on RG2550Z
Yeah, singlecoils are generally quite a bit weaker than humbuckers. You have a couple options:
* Lower the humbuckers a bit so the drop isn't as noticeable
* Install a hotter singlecoil that has enough output to at least be in the same ballpark as a lower-output humbucker (Dimarzio's Area pickups might work here, and the Heavy Blues 2 would probably be perfect - it's a little darker than norma, so it'd be a good tonal match, as well)
* Just live with it. Some people prefer this configuration because it gives them a way to clean up their sound a bit by flipping the pickup switch.
