    hi, last night was the first gig with my new sx p/j. i dropped in a quarter pound P and kept the factory jazz pup in there. i noticed that the bass wasn't very loud even with the gain and master pretty cranked. so i turned down the neck pup and it sounded super quiet. i turned the neck pup up and turned off the bridge pup. BAM! plenty loud. rolled the bridge pup back up and it got weak again. i know very little about electronics.
    does this problem sound familiar to anyone?
    thanks in advance!
     
  2. If the pickups are out of phase, swap the leads on one of the pickups.

    so that's what it sounds like the problem is, right?
     
  5. Not necessarily.

    Out of phase pickups have a thin nasally sound, it doesn't always mean a weak volume though.
