    i have a MIM fender j bass v and its volume control on both pickups are very... dramatic. if i turn it alittle, it will nearly turn off volume wise. is there a problem with my pots? if so, where can i get new pots to fit a j bass?
    (sorry for posting so many things)
  2. That happens when the pots you're using are too high of a resistance. Was it like this when you purchased the bass?

    This is normal for these basses. I have a MIA Fender Jazz bass and it does the same thing.

    o, thats good to know (i think) but i still wish that there was more volume control. any ideas on how to give me more control? if theres no ideas... i guess i can just live with it.
