As long as I have owned it it has (40 years), I have adjusted the mic
height so I have a minimum of, mic magnet,
modulation of the string but I can't make it disappear completely. just
wanted to hear if this is a known problem?
It is a common problem. The neck p-up will have the greatest dampening
effect, followed by the middle, and the bridge won't have as much
effect due to it being so far from the part of the strings that
Just to prove the theory, take *all* of the p-ups down level with the
pickguard. Play it now (unamplified). Sound better? Adjust them
starting with the bridge to a hieght where there is no "strat-itis".
