    well you're right in that it's the wrong forum, but it's off to setup for you.

    Well, the last thread was in basses, and you can't change deadspots with a setup...but you're the mod ;)

    I was playing around with pup height the other night and set my pups as close to the strings as I could get them. I really couldn't see a huge difference until I noticed a couple of dead spots that weren't there before. I lowered the pups and the dead spots went away.

    I can't explain why. but it happened and I was able to repeat the experiment with the same results.

    This probably wont work for all "dead spot" problems but may be worth a try.
