    Anyone have this issues with these pickups, I have tried different pre's, pickup heights and the tone still breaks up when digging in a little. This applies to the bridge especially when soloed.

    I didn't have that issue when I had a set in my Lakland. I just found them too dark for my taste. But no issues.

    Never had a problem with any that I've had, and oddly unlike DWBass I find them super bright!

    But I'd say you're distorting the input of whatever you're plugging into..which is what?

    Try playing through a different amp, maybe one with a dedicated active input. If you still have problems, your pickups probably got the bad end of quality control, or were otherwise damaged in some way.
