Hi Sheldon, I was wondering if the Combustion P-Tone pickup is designed to be louder on the E&B strings than on the A/D/G strings, or did I wire it up wrong? For example the E-string 5th-fret A sounds much the same as the open A-string with the bridge pickup, but on the neck pickup it booms out a lot more. For full disclosure I got the [url=https://www.dingwallguitars.com/purchase/shop/fd3-pj-pickup-replacement-set-for-combustion-5/:22jm2d8w]PJ FD3 pickups[/url:22jm2d8w] fitted to my Combustion ?249 back in the Autumn of 2011. Now I've just had a new set of [url=https://www.dingwallguitars.com/purchase/shop/dingwall-nickel-plated-steel-long-scale-5-string-set/:22jm2d8w]Nickel strings[/url:22jm2d8w] installed and the bass setup anew, and noticed E & B strings are still louder than the others, on the neck pickup only, even though that pickup's been lowered to the max on the B-string side (the two pickups are level on the G-string side, about 3-4mm below the bottom of the strings, as is the bridge pickup on the B-string side, whereas the neck pickup is a good 2-3mm lower right there). Any info would be much appreciated. With best regards, Fletcher.

Hi Fletcher, I may need you to send a message to tech@dingwallguitars.com if this get's too involved but can you detail if you notice this on all three pickup selections that contain the neck pickup or only some of the selections? If it's just some, which ones?

Hi Sheldon, just a quick note of thanks to yourself and to Jeff for helping me fix my bass - he diagnosed that I had indeed wired it up incorrectly : the PTone pickup was supposed to be used in series, but I'd had it installed in parallel. So now that's fixed, I've got even tone from string to string, and I can set about rediscovering my neck pickup once again. Many thanks, and best regards, Fletcher.
