    I've got a 08 highway 1 Pbass that stopped working at a gig last night. When I was hooking up I think I plugged into the wrong connection in the DI.

    Could it be the phantompower in the DI that killed it?

    No bad solderjoints or anything like that, that I could fint at least.

    The bass worked fine earlier that day.

    Luckily I brought my backupbass...

    But thanks anyway, that might rule the DI out.

    +1 Never heard of anything remotely like that. Are you sure the bass itself doesn't work. Do tell more about ALL the equipment in use.

    Its the bass it self that doesn't work. The entire rig worked when i switched bass. Tried to solder the pickupt directly to the output, wich also resulted in no sound (not shure I did it right though...) I'll be able to check it with a multimetere tomorrow
