I recived the bass last thursday and it is pretty playable out of the box, i was very suprised considering it just went coast to coast. Great playing bass and i will start a new thread with pics in a few days but i need some help with the pick ups first. I am trying to figure out can you solo each pick up?, isint the control when in the middle an even blend example second knob J and Humbuker in the middle would be the blend. When the say magnetic pick up their talking the J and Humbucker right. I notice with the master volume all the way up and the J and Humbucker in the middle and the third knob turned all the way to the right full piezo it seems this combonations lacks out put. Any direction on how to use these blends and adjustments in the control cavity would greatly be appreciated. PS I think this is a well constructed bass and i really love the greenburst finish.
