I was wondering about this... I don't where this is supposed to be, but I'll take a chance here. I've noticed that some basses don't have very good output on those high strings, and some others do. Sorry, I can't name you any. That's why I started the thread. Is this true? Do you know any basses that have GREAT output on ALL string? I believe it is a crucial characteristic of a bass to evenly distribute output from all strings. Thanks for your time.
