I know all about picks bouncing off pickups :roll: The lack of this characteristic is an endearing aspect of Teles and Juniors.
My Epiphone Riviera as received from the factory, has the middle pickup set lower than the others to alleviate this issue. I also tend to use the middle pickup volume control more as a tone control by blending the volume with the others - it can take out some of the potential ice pickiness of the bridge pickup or mellow out the neck pickup. Other times the middle volume is backed right off giving a brighter overall sound. I like the 3 pickup setup for its versatility.
Single P90 and picking dynamics. Job done. :D
Fixed.
