OK, bear with me, but I have two related questions.
Is the wiring on the C64 the same as the C64S? I've been playing/test driving the C64 at my local store and it sounds quite different from my C64S. The neck pickup seems quite weak in relation to the horseshoe. The opposite seemed to be true of my C64S. Granted, I have bypassed the resistor in my horseshoe, so perhaps my memory is messing with my perception.
Also, other than the resisitor (or is it a cap- sorry, I'm not a technical guy) is there any other difference in the 4001CS? It's truly an amazing sounding bass(and tons of gain compared to my C64S and 4003S). I think every bass in the world should sound that good!

I've read that the horseshoe treble pups used on the CS and the V63 basses is different than the ones on the C series. They toned down the output for the C series to get a more true vintage tone. Correct me if I'm wrong please!
I bought 4001CS #475 new back in '92. Awesome bass. I'd love to get my hands on one of those horseshoes to put on another Ric, but I'll probably have to buy a whole V63 to get it.

Same wiring harness. But if you bypassed your capacitor, you would certainly expect the treble pickup to be much louder and more properly balanced agains the bass one.
