  1. Well I changed my pots on my MIM to 500k and got more top end from my DP123's but the bridge PUP lost most of it's volume,anyone know why?I also changed from creme to blaack covers could I haave damaged the PUP in changing covers?Help PLease!
     
  2. An electromagnetic pickup is a simple circuit which either (a) works or (b) doesn't work. So if it's working, I don't think you damaged the pup. More likely what you did was wire the two sections of the bridge pup together in parallel rather than series when changing, or made some other error in the wiring to the pots. Check your wiring carefully!
     
  3. After checkng the wiring i discovered the PUP ws damaged.The DG string side has no power.I have half a humbucking.the internal winding was broken during cover swapping.Now I have 1 DP123 and 1 stock PUP in my bass.Kinda undecided about the Dimarzio sound anyway.It could be my amp sucks too I'm not sure.(Acoustic 136)
