    well, i have had this problem for some time and it's starting to irritate me...

    it seems like the neck pickup goes dead while the other is fine... the thing is that it takes the "Balls and Growl" out of my sound...

    sometimes, i just take the batteries and change them of position and it fixes... so i figured it was something with the battery connectors... i changed them, worked fine some time and then the same problem began...

    any idea of what hapenning?

    (when i move the blend knob to the bridge pickup it sounds fine, when i move it to the neck pickup -whole- it stops sounding)

    HELP!!!

    I had the same problem w/ the rear pickup on my btb6 - simple resolder fixed it (no greater than a 30watt).
