Just finished up a Partscaster (based on a Squier 72 Thinline) and have noted an issue with the bridge pickup (8.14k). The output seems about half of the neck PU (7.41k), which is nice and full. I have run out of travel on the neck pickup trying to get it closer to the strings. So, to balance, I have sunk the neck PU 2-3mm farther away from the strings. The bridge PU still seems weak and thin. I had to shift the bridge forward to allow for the 24.75" neck I installed. Could the mass and height of the bridge be causing a problem by being too close?? See pix. I can remove the springs and insert rubber spacers to allow the bridge PU to come up closer to the strings, but this just seems weird. Thoughts?
