Pretty sure there's room for one more pickup :neener:

I was always confused why the four string got the straight and angled set, and the fivers got the super pinched double bridge thing. The four strings sound great and the fivers are too nasally for me so yeah problem fixed!

There was a slight hump roughly after the 14th to the 18th fret no matter how much I tried to straighten the neck. In order to correct this my friend did some fret levelling on the 20th to the 24th fret. Somehow it made this bass playable again.
Before I had to set the action pretty high to avoid fret buzzing. I hope this explanation made sense. feel free to ask me anything else. Cheers

What's the control layout on this? And why the need for a battery switch?

Hi,
Blend knob. Front is just the neck pickup. Rear is the 2 rear pickups.
Volume knob. Active / Passive
Stacked Bass and treble.

Battery switch is there because the battery seems to still drain even though it was unplugged. Had this problem from the very beginning. Grew tired of unplugging the battery each time. Had a new 9v batt connector installed.

Cheers
