    Hey Guys,

    Today I decided to replace the greasebucket wiring from my 2007 Highway One P. I followed the wiring diagram from the Seymour Duncan website (http://www.seymourduncan.com/support...atic=std_pbass). I used a .047 mF cap.

    Now I get a beautiful tone when I roll of my tone but I lose so much volume! I really have to crank my amp to get it audible and when I roll my tone back in I almost go deaf, so much difference in volume.

    Could this be due to the baddassII bridge (so much highs that I filter almost all of my signal away when I roll of the tone), or could there be something else that's causing this?

    Any help or similar experiences would be greatly appreciated!

    It's definitely not the bridge.

    If you lose the volume altogether with the tone at "0", it could be a shorted tone cap,
    or a wiring problem like a short.

    One other possibility is a very large cap value. What cap did you use? How is it marked?
