Lost the neck pickup in my 2 month old Geddy

    Hey guys, anyone here ever had problems with the electronics in a Geddy Lee Jazz? I've had mine just a shade over 2 months and last night the neck pickup went kaput. This morning I pulled the control plate off and all the connections on the pots are good, and the volume pot for the neck pickup checks out fine with an ohmmeter. I took it back to Sam Ash to have them diagnose it further, rather than pulling the neck pickup out on my own.

    Best I can figure, either there is a bad connection at the pickup, or the pickup itself has failed. :( since I really dig the bass and don't want to be without it.

    If Sam Ash has the bass, let them diagnose the problem. Most likely it is a broken connection. I've seen this happen on a few basses.
