Bongo 5 HH Problems
Hey guys! I’ve had the left handed Bongo 5 HH Stealth for a few years now and I love it! I recently checked the FAQ on Music Man site and it said the bridge pickup is supposed to be closer to the strings. For me to get equal volume, I have to drop the bridge pickup into the body and raise the neck pickup almost all the way to the strings- the opposite of what the site says. The neck is significantly lower in output volume than the bridge. I checked the ohms on each pickup and the bridge is sitting at about 2.15 ohms and the neck is at 1.47. I called Ernie Ball
and they are both supposed to be around 2.2 ohms.
Does anyone know what could possible cause this problem with normal use of a pickup and also how to fix it? I’ve literally NEVER encountered this issue with active or passive electronics in my life and I certainly never expected it from such an expensive and quality bass like a Bongo. Any help would be amazing!
