Is it just me or do strats tend to have lower volumes even with the volume knob all the way up as compared to other guitars? Anyone know why this is the case? Oh, and I'm talking bout regular ol' stratocasters and not superstrats. Even with a humbucker they still sound weaker.

Not that I have noticed. My PRS has high output pups and my strat has vintage style pups and I have never detected a volume difference. Maybe your pickups are too low?

Well yeah but that's compared to my other guitars which both have active EMG's so it's kinda to be excepted

Its the pots. Most humbucker guitars have 500k, if I recall strats have like 250k or something.

Buy an Eric Clapton or Richie Sambora signature Strat, they're roughly three times the output of even the new Seymour Duncan Metal Blackout active pickups.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
