    Well, I love this pickup!
    I've replaced the bridge one with a SD Broadcaster but the neck sounds fantastic to my ears.

    Unfortunately it's getting hard to keep it from squealing on stage, even when I use the middle position (neck+bridge)!
    It's my main guitar and in my band I have some songs with medium to high gain sounds (lead stuff) and I usually play them with the middle position and it's getting harder and harder to control the squealing it does!

    Is there a solution for this?

    Try to put some foam behind the pickup in the cavity, it could help or not.

    I've heard about that before!
    Had a CV 50's that had that but I thought it was to raise the pickup!
