    Hey folks, a friend brought me his MIM Active Jazz Bass 4 to check it out, because when both, bridge and neck pickup are soloed, they sound full and nice as it should be, but in center detent the sound is too weak, it loses a lot of volumen, and the tone becomes thin, which could be the reason for this? (every factors are fine, battery, strings, pickup height etc..)

    Thank you very much!

    Reverse the hot and ground leads on one of the pickups.
