  1. hey ken
    just sayin, love these basses, just 1 question though, with my preamp, i cant completely cut the volume, on active and passive, could this be the pot or the actual preamp....

    also, any plans to make a KSD p-bass :smug: :D ;)

    With most pots, you can't completely cut the volume.
    I remember there was a good article about this somewhere, which even wrote how it can be modded to cut out at minimum, but I forgot.

    Anyway, does it matter? If you want to play, yet not be heard, then turn off your amp :p
  3. well yeh, i like to lean more towards the neck pickup, and sometimes theres a light hum...but yeah, i just thought this a little wierd, first instrument ive used that the volume pot doesnt completely cut
