    hi.
    i have a ibanez sr500 and its a great bass. However the neck pick up works 100% but when i turn the eq to both or just bridge pick up the sound of the bass is horrible. when ever i play a note it plays normally but with fuzzy/buzzing noise on top. its unplayable. when i mess around with treble and mid settings it changes the lvl of the fuzzy noise.

    Any idea on what is wrong please ?? :help:

    So the noise doesn't happen until you play? If so, you probably have a bad connection. Check the wiring from where it attaches to the pickup, and to the volume(or blend) pot. If this checks out, it might be a wire break or partial short within the pickup.
