DiMarzio PAF Pro vs S.D. JB Bridge
I have a Kramer Barretta with a JB humbucker in the bridge position, I added a PAF Pro in the neck position. My question is should the PAF be alot hotter or did I botch the wiring. The reason I ask is that I thought the JB was a hot pickup but the PAF blows it away Thanks, Bob

A PAF is a pretty hot pickup - but _any_ pickup in the neck position will give hotter output than it does in the bridge position due to the larger excursion of the vibrating strings in that spot.

J's definitely right about the neck/bridge relative volume thing. I compensate by raising the bridge pickup close to the strings, and lowering the neck pickup until they are relatively balanced. I have a Kramer Pacer and only one volume control so it's a small problem, easily solved.
