Other thing i came up with, is that the guitar still has the same string gauge it comes from factory (9's) and that could be the reason for the thin, not loud sound from the 81 pickup....

The difference between sounds is more obvious when you are using the clean channel, when using a heavy dist u could hardly say wich pickup you are using...

Somebody knows if this is allright? somebody has the same pickup configuration? somebody knows if it is normal to have more volume output (notticeable) from the 85 pup?

Thanx a lot, any help would be appreciated!

yeah that's normal assuming both pups are level with one another. My pup configuration goes 85-SA-85 and the neck 85 is lowered more than the rest to even out the output difference. The string gauge shouldn't really have anything to do with it. So, lower your 85 and go from there.
