Jazz Bass D & G strings break up or no sound.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by SFBBP, Oct 27, 2021.


  1. I have had the bass for over 8 years. I replaced the original pick-ups with Demarzio's when I first received the bass.

    It just started doing this. The E and A strings sound fine when plucked but the D and G strings break up or don't sound at all. I tested it on a couple of amps as well as changed cables with the same result.

    I have no idea where or how to begin to troubleshoot this issue.

    I hope someone can give me feedback.

    Sounds like you have installed split coil pick ups and the coils for the D and G strings are not working. Does it happen with both pickups? You can double check the wiring to make sure all of the coils are connected correctly.
