    It's Fender Active P-Bass Special with stock electronics and hardware. No matter how I adjust the preamp, it always sounds trebley, this didn't happen with my P-Bass copy, which only had cheap pickups and a volume and tone knob. Could this be the noiseless pickups?

    You might really like flat wound strings on this bass.
    I sure like-em on my (active) Fender Deluxe P-bass. (less clang... more bang !)

    I do use flatwounds :D

    The roundwounds that came with it were REALLY trebley, so I put some old flatwounds on it :p

    Looks like you're looking for a passive bass.
