The jazz band has an old Fender P-bass. It's nice but in its current state it is so hard for me to play compared to my cheap Ibanez. The pickups are screwed down almost flush with the pickguard, the strings are rusting, and the neck is bowing out. These all seem like easy fixes but the jazz band bassist refuses to do any of these. The amp is a brand new Fender Rumble 150, which sounds fantastic when it is EQ-ed properly, but right now the bass is at 8, the low-mids at 0, the high mids at 10, and the treble at 10. It sounds like garbage to me, but again, I'm not the jazz band bassist. Am I crazy or is this actually the wrong way to do it?
