looking at tone curcuit
this is my first passive with two tone controls
plays nice, but 'artificial' and gnarly

appears the tone controls are just one on each pickup
not sure why they call that bass and treble controls
took out the caps and measure them, and they they are both 70n

and, I found one one cap to be very poorly soldered, and loose
quite a mess with all those wires
will change that later
for now I just moved the caps to positive side of signal

nice change, and improved the already good playability even further

Hi Tin, you have been busy on the bass builds and I have been dropping by on your posts from time to time and catching up. Nice work.

testing different strap pin/button placement

this particular bass have exstreme offset
the experiment started because I found it very stressing

but in the end I have decided to keep it
proved quite good for the low wearing rock style

but absolutely no good for a high wearing
makes this bass feel like a crawbar
a small offset to the opposite side cured this completely
actually, almost feels like it lost a pound or two
a nice surprice

new bass just came in ... a really cool and cheap Toby

trying to reuse the present pots, two 500K, and one 1M
balance pot went out
1M for the tone pot sounded very thin, and not good at all
but a 50K resistor takes care of that
nice and easy
