I've had my R7 for about a year. It sounds very nice when played acoustically. I've always really liked the bridge pickup. My problem was that the tone controls have never worked too well and the neck pickup was a little muddy. Especially on the low strings. I just recently had a set of WCR darkbursts and the standard RS premium (pots and caps) kit installed. The tone controls are more interactive and clean up a little better now. The bridge pickup is very similar to the burstbucker that was in there before. I'm still having the same problem with the neck pickup. Any suggestions? I don't see how it could be the wood because it sounds very resonant acoustically and the bridge pickup sounds great.
