I am going to try and mess with the micro tilt and saddle height but it may need a professional setup which would cost me another 50. Thank you in advanced
I suggest you Yamaha Bbg4s
Not the best one, 'cause it would have been an (ultra rare) Bbn4A, but the Bbg4s is less old so you'd happen to be the owner of a well preserved bass
Very good AlNiCo soapbars, so and so electronics (two instead of three band equalizer on mentioned Bbn4A) and you know Yamaha accuracy and fit and finish are nearly second to none
So: what to choose? Who's the best in setup skills, between your brother and you? The practically fastest has to periodically deal with Peavey to keep it in operatin' order, the laziest can count on Yamaha proverbial viability.
