I am asking because I just aquired a 5pII after many years of searching and really love it.
Thank you in advance!
thanks for the kind words!
the tone you are hearing is the blended sum of 2 d.i. lines... the clean tone is coming from an eclair engineering evil twin d.i. and the 'colored' tone is coming from an aguilar tone hammer d.i..
the action is definitely leaning toward the lower side on that bass, but not as low as a couple of my other instruments. i had yamaha modify that bass for me so that i'd have an 18mm spacing at the bridge. it's one of my favorite instruments. congrats on finding yours!
