Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    I have a Yamaha BB N4 bass. It has a lovely tone but I can never seem to get the output matched across all frequencies. The bottom end is powerful and rich but as I move up the neck (more noticable on the G & D string) the output level seems to weaken.
    I have used Rotosound and Fender strings.
    I have tweaked the amp tone (Trace Elliot) with some success but the problem still exists through different amps.
    Is this a faeture of the pick-ups? Is there something I can do with the setup or wiring to help? Should I consider new pickups?

    Thanks in anticipation.
