  1. you may have seen my thread earilier here about hum

    well now i have manged to get it all grounded properally and there is no hum at all, however new problem, the picups are soooooo quiet I can barely hear anything at all and the E string dosnt seem to be picked up at all so i think it has somthing to do with the top (its a split p) pup or both i am not sure, any ideas?
  2. It would be helpful if you post a diagram of your wiring method. It sounds like you have loaded the signal down somehow or overheated a pot causing it to go bad. My suggestion, ohm the pots and the circuit. First plug a cable into the basses jack. Ohm the other end of the cable with the volume controls at max. What is the reading.
