I used to think that, especially with my 2nd bass (Westone Spectrum GT) which is the one I played for many years and still can't bear to part with. I messed with the pickups on it and was able to get a small improvement but it's been the same on every bass since and now I send them to my local Luther for a set up as soon as I get them. I'm guessing if you and other members don't get the same problem then it's something to do with my technique thats wrong. make's sense as I'm self thought so probably have lots of bad habbits.
