    Check the actual battery connection, it could get loose based on shorter sized batteries and cause all kinds of hiccups. One solution is to put padding of some kind in the battery enclosure to make a...

    Not much, EMGs versus hot DiMarzios, but the HSS mode works fine for funk in both cases.

    Most versatile guitar I ever owned: R&B, rock, reggae, alt, whatever they ask me to play.

    It takes some training to learn to remove the cable from the guitar after playing but it's doable. I even remove the cable when doing gigs between sets and put the guitar back to the case, seen...

    Yes, it's a gray factory building. Nothing fancy, no museum et rest. BTW I showed up in the Fender visitor center in Corona CA with a MusicMan T-Shirt some years's back when I stopped by. :-).

    I still think the battery connection is the issue, with a similar problem I had with a Luke II I could fix it by pushing the volume knob. But the real issue is the connection in these fancy battery...

    Now composite material guitars like Parkers handle temperature/humidity much better. Then again me thinks they sound sterile compared with a wood with specific characteristics.

    If you don't have the bass (or guitar) plugged in, the batteries should last a long time. But to get cautious, replace them every N months (where N for me is six months).

    You could also try to invest in a new or used Mesa Boogie Flux-drive gain pedal. Or get a MB Mark 25 with an MB cab if you want to get close to the Petrucci sound.
