Hi: I notice this in almost every Fender MIM that I play; there is little or no tonal range at all. For example, the MIA I play the tone on the pickups can be set for a noticeable more treble or more bass; the MIM's I play the tone knobs are there but they don't do anything. Can this be fixed or is it a matter of the pickups that need to be replaced or, unfortunately both? If I take it to a tech will he know what I am talking about and know how to fix it? The reason I ask is because I only have five hundred or so for a MIM Strat but if the tone knobs can't be eventually fixed or I need to replace the pickups or both then I'll just wait to buy a more expensive MIA. Thanks for any replies!
