Hello, I'm new here And my question is this... I have an Ibanez RB800 that I love... I've owned it since 1994 when I bought it used. I love the sound and the feel of the neck... but in the last couple of years the pickups seem to have gotten tired. I'm pretty sure it's a polarity problem but I'd just like a second opinion. Whenever I hit the body of the bass, even lightly tap it with my finger I can hear it in my amp. I know I should change the pickups and probably the pre-amp (either, or, both?) , but I don't really want to. I like it the way it is. Any ideas on what I could do to fix it? thanks in advance!
