Muddy sounding neck pickup? Try Seymour’s quick tech fix

By Seymour Duncan Tech Guru Scott Miller

People often call and ask how to fix a muddy sounding neck pickup. Some years ago, Seymour taught me a cool trick to fix this exact problem. If you connect a .047 capacitor in series (directly in-line) with the hot output wire from your neck pickup, it will filter out the excess low-end, and clean up the muddy tone.  Most of the time, this solution is perfect. And, it is an easy mod that most people can do themselves.
