  2. The "Little metal dots" are actually the Pole peices(Magnets that pick up your strings movement) My guess is that you've got Jazz bass pickups in there...It's (to me) designed to be a slightly thinner, but more mid rangey sound...lotsa growl but still a good prominent thump...Not necessarily better but it's a different approach...It's kinda my style, but my style is "whatever sounds good" not "Jazz basses rule" or "Jazz basses suck" "or Sting Rays are the only way to thump" If it'll get me the sound I like, It's what I want.

    If the bass gets you the sound you're after...Then it's what you need to use...
