So I have a schector diamond series bass with emg pickups. Love the bass, I have had it for 5 years now and I have grown quite accustomed to its extended neck and frets. One problem that I keep having to deal with is the pickups. At first it kept shorting out my sound and I assumed it was the battery, but then I discovered that it was the wires. They were bound together when manufactured and I believe they are the reason why my pickups keep shorting out. So I'm basically at my wits end with these pickups and I'm considering switching them to passive pickups so I can just start anew with the bass I love. Does anyone have suggestions as to give up on the active and try to repair the wiring or just start fresh with some new pick ups. Thanks!
