Parrallel Pickup Levels


Recommended Posts

Have been experimenting with various different pickups on different guitars. I've put a couple of humuckers on my strat in neck and bridge position, and changed the wiring so you can have neck and bridge on, in parrallel.

Although the neck pickup is a little quieter than the bridge, when I switch them both on, the tone output is pretty much that of the mellow neck pickup, and I have to turn it down more in order to get a proper blend, leaving the neck pickup really quiet when on its own.

Is this normal? Is it just a matter of pickup matching or is there something I can do about it? On my LP style guitar i dont have this problem and get a good blend really easily.

Any ideas?
