I just had my Mustang set up by a Luthier and it sounds much better now. He said the bridge pup was too low, so he remounted it. It is still mounted directly to the body, but is now much closer to the strings. Next time I talk to him, I will ask him exactly what he did, but, whatever he did, it sure did he trick! I used to have a Jag-Stang that sounded exactly like my Mustang before the set up, so I swapped PUPs. Now I wonder if it was the same problem and could have been solved without the PUP swap? It was the same luthier, so he probably would have done a similar type of set-up. Is the Jag-Stang a direct to body mount pup as well?
