: I recently purchased a Highlander Pickup for my Engelhardt Swingmaster Bass. I had a qualified installer "groove" the pickup into the bridge as per the installation instructions. All I get is a harmonic distortion and no low end. Anyone else have this problem?

Maybe you need a preamp as a buffer for the high impedance of this pickup?
I suspect that your amp input is loading the pickup.
Can you try to put a preamp between the pickup and your amp's input?
Like a Fishman model B, a K&K, etc.
