So I have recently aquired an epi SG with a Seymour Duncan Dimebucker and an EMG boost in it. It sounds good, but its not quite as high output as I thought it would be. Could the guy that put it in have wired it bad? Is there something that could be dropping the signal? Im playing through a peavey vypyr 75 (and yes you can tell the difference in pickups). I just think its odd that the stock neck pickup sounds like it has more output than the bridge.
how far is the pickup from the strings. if it's too far then you could lose the crunchy output you are probably looking for
little lower than it should be. It was practically in the body when I got it. But i raised it and it helped a little but it still feels lacking
