  1. I have a 1985 bass with Bart JJs and I notice 2 thing that is not usual.
    First the magnetic strength from both pups are much weaker compare with my newer Bart JJs. Next is that when I play it on passive mode, the output is very low too.
    Since I just have this bass so I don't know if it was design like this when they made it or not so I wonder if the pups on this bass are expired.
  2. Could these symptom is because of that this pups were active
