hi all, i registered to see if anyone has any ideas about this question. i have a korean spector 4 string which has many redeeming qualities, except the electronics and pickups seem less than faithfull to the qualities of the wood. what i'm feeling in the fingerboard and body seems a lot better than what is coming out of the amp (eden WT500). my first instinct is to try a passive bypass around the preamp. it has the original pickups and preamp. any ideas?
