Vox Super Lynx Pickup Repair

I have a 1967 Vox Super Lynx and the bridge pickup has significantly weaker output than the neck. I've read descriptions of these guitars previously and this is commonly noted. While this could be by design, the output is weak enough that it would be difficult to use the bridge pickup alone. It does have a cool surf style kind of sound but to get any volume out of it you have to crank the amp so high, that it would be difficult to switch back and forth between the pickups without some major volume adjustments to your rig. It does sound pretty good when mixed with neck pickup, giving the guitar a "Beatlesque" kind of sound.

Would it be worthwhile to have the pickup rewound or otherwise repaired or should I just leave it as is?

If I was to have it repaired who would you recommend?

A pic of the pickup would be a good place to start. There were a few different kinds on Voxes through the years and I only know them by sight. I can tell you that the white molded plastic bobbin/cover ones with larger Alnico poles croak pretty easily.

Sounds like a job that's a bit over my head, but I'd like to find out more. Can you provide a link to the article? I can't seem to find it on their site.
