Hoping some of you Lakland disciples might have some insight on this. I recently picked up a Skyline Decade. It's a great bass, and a nice change of pace from the more P-oriented stuff in my collection (my only other dual pickup bass is a G&L SB-2). The only issue I have with it is that the volume pots are really touchy. Seems like most of the control exists between about the 8 and 10 positions (if you will) on both pots. Around the halfway point or below, the the pickups are very quiet. Oddly, I didn't notice this so much when I first sat down to play it solo, but when I broke it out for practice and was futzing with dialing in my sound it became pretty apparent. I wouldn't call it a complaint and it's certainly not a deal breaker because I can blend the pickups as needed. It's just that a little goes a long way and, assuming this is normal, it's something I'll have to adapt to. Just wondering if others have had the same experience. I have a Dark Star equipped Glaub that doesn't exhibit this behavior, so maybe it's a characteristic of the Chi-Sonic pickups? As I understand it the Skyline electronics are the same as the US series, so again, assuming this is normal behavior, I'd assume the CS-equipped US Decades are the same way? Any input is appreciated.
