Mickguard Posted April 15, 2005 Report Share Posted April 15, 2005 I replaced the humbuckers that came with my Samick Royale with a pair of GFS Brooklyns...they're single-coils, look (and sound) like old Dearmonds. And they sound great...except...they're really hot. Way hotter than the pickups on my strat. I have the pickups backed all the way off the strings right now--though they'd sound better if I could get them closer. But as it is I have to turn my amp way down, or otherwise turn the guitar's volumes down to 2...doesn't make sense. Except, maybe it's the pots on there guitar? Since the guitar was originally designed for humbuckers? (It'd be a real PITA to change the pots on this guitar, it's a semi-hollowbody).... Maybe I should try a different pickup?
