  1. i was just playing my bass and i accidently flip the swtich up, and my bass stop playing !!!!. just be sure if the switch is flipped up thats the neck pickup right? i dont if i did anything to it, i'm never really rough with it but what the hell? could it just be a wiring problem you think? and if so how can if ix that, i never figured out how to take off all the clunky metal stuff and the pickguard or taking the knobs off. i mean i dont even use the neck pickup it just pisses me off that it doesnt work you know. so any help would be great, thanks again for the help guys.

    Chances are, you're plugged into the Rick-O-Sound jack and not the regular mono jack, that would gove you just the breidge pickup. I did that once, freaked me the hell out. I went through and resoldered half the wireing before I figured out what I had actually done.
