i received my hofner icon in the mail the other day. its a little difficult to understand the controls. it seems like the bass control had to be on for the neck pickup to work and the treble control has to be on for the bridge pickup to work. with both bass and treble in the off position i seem to get no sound even with both volume controls wide open. so do the bass and treble controls work together with the volume controls or am i understanding this the wrong way? i've only played my fender p-bass in the past 1 volume 1 tone control...easier to understand. by the way the bass sounds great anyway, just trying to understand it a little better. i'll be restringing with labella deep talkin' beatle bass flats.50-.100 today. i'm looking forward to hearing the difference this makes.
