Greetings. I also posted this in the "guitars" forum but I believe this is also an appropriate place. I recently bought a 2012 MIA Jazz Bass Deluxe. I love the neck and tone but noticed a significant drop in volume compared to my other guitars. I performed an "A-B" comparisons with my Yamaha 5 String (active stock pick ups). My questions: 1. Is the MIA Fender Deluxe V known for being weak on volume? 2. If I were to replace the pick-ups with some hotter ones, does anyone who has done this (to a Fender Deluxe V) have any suggestion? I think I read that Dimarzio doesn't have a pickups to install into this ax that don't require some modifications. I prefer not to have to drill new holes or perform other modifications in case I decide to put the original pups back in. Any input woill be greatly appreciated.
