    After lurking here for a long time I've finally joined this forum
    hoping someone can help me troubleshoot this.
    I have a Hagstrom Beluga IIF that sounds very distorted even with the preamp switch off and no battery inside.
    I took the bass to my local Hagtrom dealer but they cant figure out whats wrong. U.S. Music doesnt know whats wrong with it and since I bought it used they wont fix it even if I pay them. The store's repair guy think we should replace the preamp. Any thoughts on this?

    Have you tried lowering the pickups? If they're too close to the strings the signal will be distorted.

  4. I think the store repair guy isn't really much competent.
