Hello, Bass fam. I am a newby to bass (but a adv beginning guitar) and got a Dean Zone II used for Xmas. I noticed it had trouble generating enough signal for Rocksmith and my Vox amplug (don't have a real amp yet, no space). If I crank both the bass and Vox volume, I get a decent sound. When I hook up my cheap strat knock off, I only have to put the volume up to 50% ish to get a good sound. I sent it to my local store. The guy cleaned it and soldered the input jack, telling me that should fix the problem. Got it home and same problem. So now I am stuck. Any Ideas? Pups? Dead Pots? Time to give up and buy that Squier Jazz on Craigslist? Thanks!
