.... What kind of thick mud sounding growl? Pile drivingly heavy, or more of an immense deep punchy growl?
Immense deep Punchy
a stringray or a jazz bass with low mids boosted
thunderbird or EB-0 pickup'd bass
How about a P bass with a PJ setup? Can't remember what Fender calls that model but I would think that would give you what you want.
'72 Telecaster Bass with the humbucker. Strung with flats.
EB-0 p'up bass or the humbucker Tele bass. A P bass will get you in that direction too but with less mud.
Would this be good or not?
try a jazz with the neck pup 75-100% on. its a lot more deeper and a tad muddier than the bridge pup, but it still maintains that growly tone.
If i'm thinking of the sound you're thinking, bridge humbucker.
If you want thick mud you need to look at basses with the pickup closer to the neck, not the bridge.
It doesn't get any muddier than a Telecaster Bass or an EB0 style basses.
An EBO or EB3 for sure.
That's where I'd go for that sound. If you're going to be thinking of a Gibson EB series bass, go for the EB-3. The EB-0 is mud-city with no growl or definition, but if you mix in a bit of the EB-3's bridge humbucker, it'll help a bunch.
Also worth noting is that the EB-0 is short scale and the EB-3 is regular.
An EB-3 has a short scale. An EB-3L has a 34" scale
Maybe an EB3 or a Epiphone Jack Casady bass.
They come both ways. Vintage & new. Check out Gibson's website for the new SG Bass. Anybody remember the EB4-L?
Other dude's right, the original old EB-3s had short scale, the EB-3Ls had long scale. Epiphone's versions differ.
