single coils action in picking

i have a single coil in the middle position of my guitar and i think it goesin the way of my picking becaue it's black finish isnt anymore on some parts of it due to my picking.
i played a guitar without a single coil, and i had to pick a little harder toplay fast, whatt do you thunk about that... should i lower the action on that one?

All of my middle singles are flush with top of the pickguard for that reason, gets in the way of picking. So yes.

Same for me, the single is flush or as low as possible if it can't go that low.

I was playing James's (7 dying trees) BSB at JFUK2001 and kept hitting the single coil.

It's weird how small differences can affect your playing.

Single coil is slightly lower than the two humbuckers. Any lower and it's detrimental to how it sounds, and I like middle single coils... I hit it a lot as well I think, but have changed my picking style to accomodate it I think, although I am not sure...

A friend of mine does the same as you lot, doing a dissapearing act on the single coil...

Pablo, next time you play it I'll bring a screwdriver
