    Plek can do a fantastic job but plek requires a good qualified tech or luthier. That Joe Glaser and John Suhr choose to use one tells you about its utility. It's a great tool. But it won't fix a neck...

    It's almost certainly NOT the wiring.

    Not all pickups are created equal. In fact, some pickups are created deliberately UNEQUAL, i.e. the two coils are not identical. The end result is a small...
