Okay. Here's my situation. I've got a Spector NS2000-5 with passive EMG-Hz pickups and an active 2-band EMG preamp. I like the bass, but I don't really care for the tone I've been getting, and I've been searching for ways to make the tone more to my liking. It's got a bit of a honky high-midrangey sound right now, and I'd like to try to coax some more low midrange out of it, or just tame the high mids. Originally I had planned to gut the bass and put in some active EMGs and an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp, but I'd like to look through all my other options before doing so. I was thinking of rewiring it to bypass the preamp, just for the sake of trying. First off, is this possible without having to replace pots or anything? I don't have a whole lot of knowledge regarding bass wirings, so I really need your help with this. How would I go about bypassing the preamp? Specifically, which connections would I have to change? Also, if anyone's got any wiring diagrams they could share, or suggestions of other things to try, I'd really appreciate it.
