    I've got a new Jazzmaster American Original and I'm pretty happy with it generally. Just one thing bothers me that I can't understand. The neck pickup sounds rich and jazzy, the bridge pickup is crisp and sparkly.

    In the middle position, neck + bridge, all the sparkle is gone. It sounds lifeless. I have to keep checking that the tone control is not fully open.

    What could this be?
