    I recently swapped out the bridge pickup in my Epi Traditional Pro and am finding the output way over balanced compared with my neck pickup. Switching from the middle blend to the bridge pickup I get a really noticeable volume boost, probably twice as much than when I had the stock pickup. While some boost is good and expected it's just way too much. Looking for a better match.....something with a little more output in the neck.

    Slash Neck........you might have to experiment with heights also, like dropping the bridge down a little.

    Alnico II pro neck? Or, you could try the '59?
    Have you tried adjusting pickup height and pole pieces height?

    If you wanna save a little dough, use the 59 neck. But an APH2 or Slash neck would be a perfect match IMO

    Have you raised the height of the neck pickup ?
    or lowered the bridge ?

    I actually didn't realize that they made a bridge P/U. :jo

    I guess that's what I'll start looking for....this Epi is probably going to be on the block soon but I'll likely pull the p/u, I am really digging this one!
