What is referred to when you say a pickup is compressed? Here is my prob/concern.
I have a pair of Charvel 4s. One is loaded with a Crazy 8 and it sings! Notes flow and scream and everything good in this earth...
The other, I loaded with a PATB3. I love that pickup and have had GReat results when using it before. BUT....... not in this guitar. The when I pick the notes, its kind of thuddy and dull.. It doesnt sound bad, it just doesnt sing. Im thinking that maybe it is too compressed in this guitar??
I spent 2 hours playing with the height and it just wont dial in. and the guitar sustains fine, so it isnt that the guitar is dead. Please let me if this is what seems to be the issue. I just loved the PATB3 in other axes and hope and expected this match to work.
Im ordering a Alternative8 for her. Hopefully that will bring out the beast within!
Please let me know what you think of what Im experiencing
