Members Mr_GoodBomb Posted January 24, 2010 Members Share Posted January 24, 2010 I had asked here if this would work a few weeks ago, and was told yes, but I'm thinking... maybe not. Our guitarist's guitar sounded terrible, very muddy and lifeless, so I replaced his bridge pickup (stock humbuckers) with a GFS Dream 90, and added Orange Drop caps and 1meg pots. It works fine, but it's SUPER low volume. Not even "from an EMG 81 to a tele singlecoil" change in output, but entirely too low. We had to crank his amp to get it to be usable for practice. Then, we swapped his guitar for the other guitarists, a semi-hollow, and he couldn't get his volume knob on the guitar past 2 without feedback, so clearly, there's an issue with volume from the guitar. The stock neck pickup, with 1megs, is about the same output as the bridge pickup, so it's not just the new pickup, which leads me to believe it's the pots. Should I not have used 1megs? Would that be causing the volume/output issue? I was told it would make the tone brighter and less tubby, but nothing about output... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
