    I just got my MMV yesterday. :hyper: Purchased off of ebay so always a risk. But this one is beautiful. Still has the plastic on the pick gaurd. I love the tone in the active position even with what appears to be a problem.

    The problem:

    The bass boost/cut makes a noticeable difference but the treble makes virtually no change. Do I have bad ears or do I have a problem with the pot or wiring in the treble boost/cut? :help: I did check the batteries.

    I would appreciate any input from anyone on this particularly anyone with a MMV :bawl: Actually I like the sound I get without the treble having much of an affect on tone. Killer tone. Might have to unload my 88 Kubick so it doesn't get covered in dust.

  4. i tried the MMV before and the treble boost was quite significant. there may be something wrong with the wiring... it's a great bass!
