Re: neck pickup dosent feel punchy

What do you mean by punchy? Is it a bit too thick and muddy sounding? You can filter out the lows a bit by adding a capacitor between the hot wire and pickup selector. Start with a 0.047uf cap and them work between there and maybe a 0.01uf capacitor to work out which one filters out the right amount of low end for you.
