E-A-D Low Strings Sound Dark And Dull
I am having major problems with an Ibanez RG770. The low strings on the guitar sound dark, dull, and undifferentiated. Most importantly, the strings sound this way regardless of whether they are played unplugged or plugged in to various amps.
For comparison, I strummed the strings on my Gibson SG standard, and they sound equally loud and differentiated. Alternatively, on my Ibanez, the high strings sound as loud as the SG and equally differentiated, but the low strings are about half the volume and undifferentiated.
If anyone has any suggestions regarding what part of my guitar could be causing this problems and how I could fix it would be wonderful! Please note, I don't think the problem has anything to do with the electronics of the guitar because I have played it with different pickups (stock vs. emg85 bridge), through different setups (halfstack, versus home studio) and the problem remains.
