Hello everyone I have this bass as a loaner and I was thinking of buying it from its owner. The versatility is really outstanding and its whole vibe is really unique. I understand that a lot of people are turned off by these but I feel I can really bond with this instrument. Having said this I think there's a pickup phase issue. It's not very noticeable when playing through an amp but when using headphones it's quite evident. When I play anything it sounds like there's a slight modulation effect going on. The bass sustains pretty well so it's easy to hear. Whenever I play double stops or chords it sounds like I'm going through a pedal with a subtle setting. I have tried every pickup and preamp combination and the effect is always there. It's not so much of a problem when rehearsing or gigging but when recording the phasing effect makes the bass sound slightly out of tune so of course it can't be used for that. I did a search and didn't find anything. Has anyone had a similar issue with these basses? Is this something that can be fixed without gutting the electronics and replacing them? Thanks!
