"Out of Phase"?

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by xhawk4, Nov 12, 2003.

  1. Hi All!
    I just installed a pair of J/P Barts in my '97 MIA Fender P-Bass Special. It has volume/volume/tone. All I did was unsolder the old pups and resolder the new ones.
    For some reason, when I adjust one of the volumes down, the other jumps up and the one I'm adjusting down....drops out completely.
    Is this out of phase? Do I just flip/flop the wires on one of the pups?(This happened in my Jazz bass and I just flipped the neck pup wires)
    Not sure what to do on a Jazz/Precision configuration.
    Can anyone help?

    Yes, it sounds like one pup is wired backwards. Especially if, when both are on, it sounds very thin and trebly. Simple enough to find out - reverse one and see what happens.
