    Does anyone know if the double pickup rays correct the low g string output of the single H?

  2. I'd say so. I have an HH and when you select the bridge pick-up only you get the classic 'ray sound, which does have a somewhat weak output on the G compared to the others. I fix this by raising that side of the pick-up. When I select both pick-ups though, the G becomes really fat and sweet sounding. I'd definately recommend a double pick-up model.

    Not exactly your answer, but I played a stingray with Piezo pickup option, and I felt that the G string issue was much better with that...

    I've just ordered a Sterling by Musicman Ray34 in the hopes that it will not have the G string issue. Can't wait to find out!
