I know this is going to start some controversy, but here is my dilemma: I have a refinished 1954 Black guard. Love the feel, the weight, the bridge pickup, almost everything about it except ... the neck pickup sounds weak and anemic and is not balanced with the bridge pickup. I was flirting with the notion of a replacement pickup, but for God's sake, it is a Blackguard and that seems inherently wrong. I would love to get more umph out of it and not have to be drastically adjusting the volume when I switch pickups, which I do frequently. I also wish it did not sound quite so dull and muffled. I am more of a player than a collector, but I don't want to do anything that will severely diminish the value of the guitar. Any advice?
