I'm not too mechanically inclined and would like to fix this without taking it to a repair guy because I'm looking to sell it soon and don't want to pump more money into it. Here's the deal: I lent this bass out to a good friend (who takes very good care of his gear, he's a great guitar player and needed it to play in his college's jazz band) I am pretty sure he didn't do anything to it. Out of nowhere the bridge pickup stopped working. Absolutely no sound from it. I had my older friend who is pretty electrically handy take a look at it and he said all the solders were good and he wasn't sure what the problem could be. He said maybe a bad pot. All I know is that it produces absolutely no sound from the bridge pickup and no sound is produced when you turn the pot (no scratches or anything). the neck pickup still works fine, as does the preamp, in active and passive mode. What should I look for to determine what's wrong? The bass is less than a year old... how is Fender's customer service? Thanks guys... I really am clueless when it comes to the electronical/mechanical inner-workings of our instruments.
