    I bought a Squier VM Jazz with EMG-HZ pickups installed. When I plugged it in, it's really really quiet. I put in some new foam to raise them up a bit but they're pretty close to the strings and the output is really low.

    The controls seem to work but the bridge pickup is very quiet when used alone.

    Is that just how these pickups are? If so I'm gonna have to swap them out but if it's a possible wiring or bad pot issue I'd rather do that.
