I searched but could not find a similar problem... I play in a metal band and tend to really dig in during heavy parts. With my G&L L2000 I sometimes get an odd clipping type effect when doing this. I don't think it's the amp, and the string isnt touching the pickup either. The action isnt super low, and the pickups are lowered all the way. It still happens when the bass is in passive mode. I recently switched to GHS heavy Boomers (115 low string, sounds great....for a week. But they are cheap!) and the clipping happens less, but still once in a while. Is this just because of the hot pickups? Does anyone else use a G&L L-2000 in a low tuning and have this problem?
