Post subject:  Rickenbacker 4003 Vintage Switch Question/Problem

Hi @ all !!!

I've got a small problem.

I own two Rickenbacker 4003.
One from 2007 ( Amber Fireglo ) and one from 2009 (Jetglo )
They both should have the same harness and both naturally use this vintage switch.

Now I noticed,that the treble PU is sound so much fatter, or bassy in model 2007, as the model of 2009,which sounds much thinner.
I was very surprised :o .

I both then swapped them against each other,to look,what will happen.
But nothing has changed.
No matter what I did, model 2007 still always sound fatter.

I then compared the circuit.But everything looks the same.

Hmm,now I don´t know,what else I can do .
I prefer the thin sound, as in model 2009.

What could be the problem ?
Tolerances of the elctronic parts ( caps an pots ) ?
Or the bass itself? (Wood or construction)
But I don´t think so.The differences should not be so big, right?

I would like to solve the problem on the bass and NOT on the amplifier ( bass control ) :mrgreen:

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you
