I have an '81 Rickenbacker 4001s. All the pots and wiring look as factory. I have another bass same year and the wiring matches. Problem I'm having is that the neck volume and tone work properly, but when switched to the bridge pickup, the neck volume acts as a master volume to the bridge volume and tone! How is this possible? Problem with a pot? Doesn't make sense to me.

Does this have Ric-o-Sound? Wondering if there is a shrot in that double-jack system.
