1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

how this setup would sound like?

    I'm gonna list some elements of bass and amplification and I'd like that you guys could give some opinions and ideas about the tone achieved with this combination.

    Bass:
    -Neck thru construction
    -Hi mass bridge (badass II or gotoh 201)
    -P and J pickups (vintage, like duncans spb1/sjb1)
    -2 band active preamp ( +/-12db at 40hz and 4khz)
    -Stainless strings (prosteels or roto's 66)
    -Playing with a pick

    Amp and cabs:
    -Solid state head (think gallien krueger)
    -410 speaker cabinet with aluminum drivers (hartke)

    I know you can get lots of variations with all the controls but just try to imagine the sound without cranking any knobs.

    You left out the type of wood, and the scale length. They affect the tone more than it being neck through.

    Maple neck? How about the fingerboard?

    You can find a lot of basses made like this for an example.
