The rear pickup on my 66' Jazz is starting to become microphonic. I know potting them is the answer. That's not the question. The bass is so alive right know. I have owed several Jazz basses and this one is by far the best Jazz I've ever played. I don't want to change it. It is useable if I don't boost the highs like crazy and avoid facing the amp in loud situations. The question: Will potting the pickups kill the special character that I've got happening? Right now, if I tap the wood or even rotate the strap you hear it through the amp. It brings a special acoustic feel to the instrument as if I was dealing with my upright. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
