    As long as the two really thin wires are still attached to the solder pads, it should be fixable with a new pickup lead. Looks like it's been twisted around a few times.

    I've never really seen them use a shim like that. Also I would think with the color difference, it was more likely a sticker of some sort. A shim wouldn't leave the wood a different color.

    Definitely get a fret rocker and look for some high frets. Just one can really ruin your day. If it was stored in a non climate controlled area, that can work frets up out of the slots.

    If you kept tightening the bottom grub screw, it may have gone right out of the threads, and your trem arm might also not be "locking in" correctly.

    I don't think that's a very fair assessment. Bass guitars are made of wood, and the two main pieces are held together with the pressure from bolts through the two pieces. Until you tighten them, you...

    Well, which guitars do you like? Mini humbuckers are going to sound like mini hums. They are probably firebird style, so they are definitely a different sound than full size humbuckers or single...

    The angle in the neck pocket is far more important. Also the stingray specials have a lighter body so they cannot be compared to your stingray. You've got to shim the neck.

    How much clearance is there when you adjust the truss rod? Holding down at the 1st and 12th fret, there should only be about a thin guitar pick clearance around the 5th fret.

    You would need to modify it, which would not be easy. The pickups are passive, the electronics are active, and are designed to work together. The active electronics are really what made the stingray...

    Only way to find out is to try it. The SD JB pickup was originally designed for a Strat, but you see it used in a lot of Les Paul type guitars. Some love it, some hate it.

    I would contact the company you purchased it from. There should not be scratchy pots so soon.

    You can try putting some pieces of cut up fuel line tubing inside the trem springs, which can help dampen vibrations.

    I think the FR's that they use on the axis are made in house. Have you contacted EBMM?

    Also, the locking nut should last for quite some time. Did it break?

    Well, what have you tried? Do you use standard strings, or the RPS style? With the piezo especially, the string can move across the bridge, and sometimes the wrapping on the ball end moves. Having...
