I put new pickups in my Squire (Fender Vintage Custom Shop) and tonewise they are really nice. What I am noticing is, most pronounced on the bridge pickup but also to a lesser extent on the neck pickup, is that the volume pots are nowhere near linear.
Is this normal? I don’t honestly remember if it were different or not before I swapped out the pickups.
On the bridge pickup just off zero you start to hear volume, then it stays pretty darn flat until about 80+% to 100% where it comes into full volume.
Neck pickup not as bad, can def hear a difference in volume most of the way up.
Is there a good upgrade? Are they worth it? Or is this just a thing?
This is my first bass I bought and I am happy to upgrade things and mess around as my little project bass for now. I know I will never get my $$ back from selling etc but don’t want to either.
