i need to lessen the low end when neck p-up is toggled on.

I notice that on my Js1000's, when i toggle to the neck pickup, there is a bit too much bass/low end in the tone, and not enough mid/high frequencies cutting through.

Is there a way to lessen the low end when the neck pickup is immediately engaged, without having to engage the high pass filter and then lowering the volume?

I'd like to be able to just toggle the neck pup and be done with it.........i need better balance b/n low and mid/highs.......the low end is a bit overpowering.

Thanks in advance!

Try lowering the pickup away from the strings a bit, and/or individually backing off the pole pieces on the lower strings. If the pickup is too close to the strings, sometimes you'll get a signal that's too hot and muddy.

is there a standard height for the neck and bridge pickups that ibanez goes by? And how about the height of the pole pieces?

I'll try lowering the bass side of the pickup and see what happens!!
