Hello everybody!

Does it make sense for a middle pickup to
be a bit more powerful than the neck one?

Yes, the strings vibrate less there because it is closer to the bridge, and therefore the pickup needs to be more powerful to compensate.
hot middle pickup makes the bridge/middle or neck/middle combos sound great. it's the best pickup to change on a budget.
