I've been on a major buying spree the last year, that has included three new amps and pickup swaps for several of my guitars. Not that I'm complaining! I'm lucky to have such nice gear. I'll tell you what though, getting the pickups adjusted just right in a new guitar - with a new amp - is a maddening and labourious process. I'm finding that after an hour or so of tweaking back and forth between amps and pickup rings, that I have to put the guitar down and clear my head, because I'm not really hearing objectivly after a while. You think you have the bridge just perfect, then the 'in-between' goes all honky and nasally, so you adjust back, and the two pickups dont match in output, so ... and on and on, until you realise you have too many mids dialled in on the amp because that's how your other guitar likes it... Eventually, you get it just right - not too hot, not too cold. Electric guitars are such fussy instruments. I really should play acoustic more!
