: I have a problem. I'm actually learning slapping and if I want to pop near the neck,my pickup incommodes. I would take it out, but there is a cable, that I can't disconnect, or could I easily cut it through?

: Sorry for mistakes, I'm german.

Hey there Bob,
Just wait a minute: what kind of bass do you play? There are no set rules for this, but there ARE certain prerequisites for a bass if you like to play slap style. Does your bass have its neck pickup too close to the neck so you're not comfortable with popping? Then maybe it´s time to switch to another bass. Some axes, like old Hofners and Gibsons, have their neck pickups almost next to the bottom of the neck ...unslappable beasts!! Try switching to a Jazz-style ore Musicman-style bass instead of ruining your current axe.
Just my $0.02 worth. Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,

El Pájaro.
