    Hey gang.

    I really love this bass, but the output is way lower that my other Emperor (pictured), like way lower :(
    the gain control in the cavity cover is maxed out, I replaced the batteries, I raised the pickups a little bit and nothing. Here's some pics of the control cavity.
    Thanks for the help!





    It's the Emperor on top.

    Sorry I cannot help but I do like (hipster mustache) jazz bass, never seen a Fodera like that.

    I have a friend who's a graphic designer, I asked him to design and make some high quality vinyl sticker inlays. He made some mustaches, chili peppers, bass clefs and yin-yangs for me.

    solder the pickup direct to jack to see the output.
    If output is normal then you should have ur preamp checked.
    If output is still low, replace them with higher output single coils.
