Good afternoon everyone. Question on the Majesty 20th anniversary. My only concern with the guitar is the drastic difference in volume between the neck and bridge pickups. The neck pickup is way louder than the bridge. I took it to a luthier to see if there was a way to lower the pickup height. He said no. Since the pickups are direct mounted. He thinks the rout was not cut deep enough for the neck pickup to allow it to be lowered and have it be more even in volume with the bridge pickup. I’m wondering if that’s by design. Perhaps JP likes to solo on the neck pickup more and hence wants it to be louder than the bridge pickup which would ostensibly used more for rhythm. Anyone else have this issue? I purchased in in April from Sweetwater.

Hey there. My 20th Anniversary JP6 seems to have the opposite thing going on: the neck pick-up is a wee bit lower in volume than the bridge. Not drastically, but noticable at times. So, what you have there is probably not by design. The Majesty I play has well balanced bridge and neck pick-ups.

Welcome. Well the bodies are CNC routed, so the pickup pocket depths should always be the same with some minor tool wear factored in. Have you talked to Sweetwater or EBMM customer service about the issue? That's always the best place to start. Though reaching out here is a good call as well.

If I am not mistaken, are there mini volume pots on the circuit board for individual pickup volume (that are not exposed on the cavity cover)?

Interesting! Does anyone have any more info on this? I would love to do a little better volume balancing on the Honey Butter.
