    Just installed a new set of EMG JV52 pickups in my Jazz bass.... When I turn the neck volume all the way full, the overall volume cuts down a little. If I back it off a little, the volume level gets higher. Also, the tone knob does nothing at all. I'm sure I wired everything correctly.

    I did email EMG about this issue but figured I would ask here on the board in case someone else ran into a similar issue and has any insight. TIA

    Still no reply from EMG - I'm going to take it apart and double-check all connections again. If I can't get this resolved, I may have to go with the tried and true Seymour Duncans instead but really wanted to have at least one bass with EMG's.
