Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass Problem...

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Berserk539, Mar 13, 2006.

  1. I just got this '98 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass and it's great except for one thing...:crying:

    When the pan knob is centered, the whole tone just goes kaput; like it just went passive, except with some tone control.

    When the knob is slightly turned off centered to either PUP, the tone returns; however, you only hear that one PUP, no blend.

    There have been no mods to this bass.

    What I've done to troubleshoot:
    1. Checked all grounding wires.
    2. Checked battery.
    3. Looked at wiring, it seems correct compared to the OEM diagram (nothing came loose).

    Can a pot just die? :crying:
