I think pickups or electronics on my practice bass might be dead. I've been noticing that it distorts when I play through my home PC speakers, but my Stingray doesn't. So I tried it on my bass rig and the distortion is even more noticeable while the stingray sounds absolutely beautiful. I changed the battery and had a poke around in the electronics cavity, and I didn't see any noticeable problems. It had a hard life so I'm not surprised it's starting to suffer. Nor do I feel it owes me anything. It's an old Ibanez SR885, circa 1992, with the sweepable mids, bass & treble knobs, 2 humbuckers. Short of replacing the entire electronic assembly, does anyone have any suggestions as to what might fix the problem?
