If you don't like the amp you should return it. If you got the wrong amp (surely it's labeled?) you should return it. I'm not sure what other help we can give you.

Ok, I get it now. Yes, all you have to do once you have the 4-cable setup is to assign FX1 and FX2 to footswitches on the GT10. Those are now your output channels. I think the default would be FX1...

I don't understand your wording very well.

I agree, a P-90 would be great. I haven't found a lot of humbuckers that sound warm and punchy in the bridge of a strat without having a fairly high output.

The P-Rails might be worth a look...

Wow! That's quite an interesting body shape.

Bridge looks very much like an 80s Fender USA or MIJ "System II" or "Freefylte" bridge.

The bad news is that I think they both used fairly unusual...

JB typically matches well with strat pickups. It's louder, but that's sort of the point, and it sounds quite a bit like a humbucker version of a strat bridge pickup.

They're strings. Buy a set of each and form your own opinion. You have to change them anyway.

They're going to react differently to each instrument and playing style.

That's not a solution for this problem. If the lipstick pickups are so quiet you have to crank the amp to even hear them then it's obviously not just a balance issue.

Practicing with the compressor will probably...
