    hey, im thinking about by-passing the volume and tone contols on my precision, so its literally - plug it in and go! im thinking about doing this, cos i never actually use my tone contol anyway, and i always have my volume at max (just use the amp volume)

    i was just wondering if anyone has done this, if its possible, and if anyone cud give me tips on (or tell me) how to do it? that would be perfect!

    i just wana make sure the electical hum of my bass is at a total minimum, and that involves getting rid of those pots!...plus it would kinda look sexy with no knobs, and just a smooth custom pick guard. thanks yall!
