For some reason, my Epiphone Les Paul Special II seems to be louder than my MIM Strat.

I think the pickups on the Strat are also going bad (I've only had it for a year, however)

Is it normal for Epiphones to be louder than Fenders?

yeah, single coils have less output levels than hums. Different makes/models of strats will have the same "problem" if you wanna call it that.

check the height of the pickups on both the guitars, chances are ur epi has them set higher(closer to the strings)
Set up:-
Kustom Sound 40W Guitar Amp
Marshall MG15 CD
Zoom 707 II (surprisingly good..)
VOX Tonelab ST
Jackson DK2M (Seymour duncan TB4 and the SD jazz)

Yes, the height of the pickups affects the output too. But humbuckers have higher output compared to single coils.


Yes I'm aware I'm just regurgitating here.

I see.

My strat isn't as loud as my friend's own either, but since they're different makes (mine is one of the 60th anniversary limited edition models) I suppose it would make sense.

I was just afraid that my pickups were dying or something. Thanks.
