I have been trying to sort out what is wrong with the sound out of my MIJ Aerodyne Jazz bass for the early 2000s.
It has “special” DiMarzio designed pickups, but I find them to be completely meh.
I had the bass plugged into the amp and resting by my desk and noticed a not of static as well.
I totally am not digging the overall tone and have been considering pickup swaps.
So I finally opened the cavity to take a peak at this ‘special edition’ bass.
There was no ground wire to the input jack, just a hot.
Is this a thing or a miss?
I am going to solder a wire over from the pot (another day), and will probably just replace all the pots and cap (once I drill out the holes to fit the larger pots or just buy a new control plate).
Makes no sense, right?
