And that fixed things? The pole pieces do seem a hair high. Most pickups I've seen lifetime are flush polepieces stock.

Still... seems odd overall; this "low E kinda distorting" thing.

As usual, gotta check the variac setting... where's that at? Might be too low and you're getting the typical mush.

I'm gonna try it later - along with the EQ recommendations you guys suggested.

Figured it out.. With all the dicking around with EQ settings, I had somehow done away with hi & lo pass filters.
