IMO Spectrum is the one of the best designed guitars ever made so it's no wonder you love it (I have 7 of 'em so I'm well in love!)
But as you found out, depending on the year made, some models came with sub-standard pickups known as UBC's (UnBalanced Coils) a more or less failed design attempt at creating something good. Their output is very low, around 6KΩ
The original specs on this guitar called for the MMK45 pickup which is comparable to the DiMarzio Super Distortion, usually 11-14KΩ. Now that is a pickup!
How's the playing action currently, are you still experiencing problems? You should not have any issues if you lower the bridge bolts or saddles to compensate for the slightly higher bridge.
When you can, let's see some pictures of your guitar eh ?(BTW what model is it?)
