Hello guys,

The bridge pickup in my Les Paul has been acting weird as of recent. I can't quite figure out what's wrong with it. The bass strings are fine and as they should be, but the treble strings sound out of phase and single coil like. It's kind of an odd sound and while I don't mind it now, I know it will bug me in the future. Anybody know what could be the culprit?

You check the wires to see if anything is loose/damaged? You try raising the treble side?

Yeah, everything appears to be good.


I just noticed that the pickup is F spaced. I didn't order an F spaced one so I guess they ordered the wrong pickup. Anyways, that means that the pole pieces aren't quite aligned. Could that do it?

Maybe, if they sent you the wrong one I'd send it back and get the right one.

I'll probably do that, but I want to be sure it's the pickup. I've had a couple of guitars with misaligned pole pieces and I don't think they did this.

Well, it's the treble ones that are misaligned right? If you just changed the pup and it's doing this I think it adds up that it's the pup.

I'll take your word on it then.


I'll send it back in the morning. Thanks a bunch!

Make sure you when you send it back tag what you think is wrong with it and then give the company input when you get it beck they eat that stuff up
