I think we need some form of comparison to make a proper judgment.

Play with the pole pieces, but i think it might be in your mind. Can't hurt to play with them, that's why those ones are screws.


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)
