Right, I have an Epiphone Les-Paul Standard Plus. Recently, the neck of the guitar was cracked right below the headstock. I had it fixed by a guitar store near me in cheltenham. When my mum's friend picked it up, they told her that they fixed a few other things on it. I however, do not know what these are. But ever since I've had it back, when I put my guitar onto the 'Rhythm' setting, it is considerably louder than my 'Treble' setting, which is still louder than before I had it sent away. Infact, it has made me inadvertaly do more of my solo's with the rhythm setting, which i actually prefer, but yeah. What would cause this sudden change in loudness?

Could have done a set up and raised the pickup. Just turn the screws to lower it if this is the case.

Yeah, I'll ask when I go in there soon. they should remember it as my school had to pay for everything, so it should be pretty memorable!

Lower the pick up right now and tell me if it works out. That seems most likely to me and you can avoid the hassle.

well, its 20 past 5 in the morning where i live so I can't really turn my amp on and try it. but I will when everyone in my house is up. by turning the screws, do you mean the ones at the centre of the immediate outside of the pickup?
#9
Yeah, I do. They're going through brackets on the pickup. Google it to check out estimated distances from the strings cause one side should be lower. I don't know which though, I just do it by ear and what I prefer. Tightening raises it. Loosening it lowers it. Sometimes they do that when I get a set up.

yes those should raise and lower the pick ups

For future reference, which one is the rhythm pickup and which one is the treble? im guessing the bridge one is the treble and the neck is the rhythm? as if you player closer to the bridge if not plugged in, it has a harsher sound? while more towards the neck, it is much more mellow
#12
you would be correct my good man. And out of habit, despite the rhythm and lead names, I use the neck pickup for soloing as it sounds smooth when distorted. I like the bite of the bridge for rhythm.

Typically on an Epiphone/Gibson/Agile LP, on the pickup switch it says "Rhythm" and "Treble." Rhythm is the neck, Treble is the bridge.

Im a traditionalist lol for powerchord's and heavier songs I use the treble setting with lotsa gain, and if im doing something smooth and melodic i use the rhythm, perhaps with the tone knob turned down to half way to give it that acoustic feel
#17
If you like it, keep it that way I would. but yeah, most solos are done on the neck pickup to begin with, dude. Cuts down the treble and gives a clearer sound.

Chances are they did a setup when they fixed the neck and changed the pickup height. If you like the way it sounds then leave it, otherwise lower the bridge a bit.

Yeah I know that they did a setup, but I wasn't aware that they would mess around with the pickups? I thought that just meant make sure everythign was ok, like the tuners, nut, bridge, action etc
