    OK, so if I understand you properly you have the SD musicman replacement preamp system.
    When you turn bass past 8 you get distortion.
    There are two solutions
    1) don't turn the bass past 8 ;)
    2) maybe lower your pickups or take your action up - increase the space between pickups/strings
