I have just acquired a "Frankenstein P-bass" in a trade, and I have a couple of questions about the EMG pickup that is installed. This pickup seems to have a good tone, but I think that it is wired wrong. The tone knob is just like another volume. It also makes alot of noise if I rest my thumb on the pickup while playing. I know that I am not asking the right questions, so help me out here. I couldn't pass it up because it has a nice 78' Precision neck, a BADASS II bridge, and I think the pickup will be nice if I can get it wired correctly. PLEASE help a newbie. Thanks.
