Just picked up a Riverhead Unicorn headless bass for an 80's band I'm in. After playing with it, I noticed the bridge pickup sounds great, nice and beefy, but the neck pickup sounds very thin. Long story short, I investigated and found that if I wire the neck pickup straight to the jack, it sounds like the bridge pickup, which is what I want. If I wire it to a pot (250K), it sounds very thin, and if I turn the tone pot all the way down, there is barely any output from the pickup. The bridge pickup doesn't do this- on a volume and tone pot, everything works as it should (volume pot controls volume, tone cuts the highs). The fact that I can wire straight to the jack and get a good tone out of the neck pickup, yet any kind of load from a pot and it gets the life sucked out of it really baffles me. Anyone know what I can do?
