    I have a Fender MH p-bass and most of the time when I play it just shorts out and no sounds comes out of the bass. I have to tap on the pickup to get the sound to return.

    Also,

    The metal coils are flush with the pick up cover on one pickup. But on the other the coils are down below. It seems the holes in the cover are too small.

    What do I do about this?

    Thanks
