I agree, but that leaves pos 3 useless. HH configs make pos 3 much more useful. OR a wiring change that doesn't leave the middle pickup in use by itself. You can get very creative with the 5 total coils in a HSH config. I wish that Ibanez would utilize the 5 coils better than they do. Heck, even the standard Stratocaster wiring is flawed b/c pos 2 has two tone pots active which changes the overall resistance which dulls the sound.That's the point, it should be used with neck or bridge (Pos. 2 and 4).
I didn't understand that either. I replaced it with a pup with flat poles that don't get in the way, even though it's flush with the pickguard. The open space is another reason I'm a fan of HH configs.Mine has such a volume drop its annoying and if I raise it up to compensate I hit it with my pick and it gets in the way
Yeah, god forbid. I would be forced to do it myself to, because there are no guitar shops where i live. I have to get strings and everything offline haha so it would be hard for me to find a place that would be able to fix it up for me. Im pretty sure im leaving it as is. Thanks everybody.I think you'd be more upset if something went wrong
