I have a Fender American deluxe P-bass which I like a lot, and i dont mind the tone, but sometimes I wish it sounded a little less like a P-bass and a little more modern. The traditional old school P-bass tone is too prominent. If I solo the bridge humbucker, the P-bass sound goes away some, but then its too bridgy sounding and doesnt sound too good. When I combine the two there's uber amounts of punch and articulation, but it has that P-bass airyness with no depth. I want a deeper punchy sound. With some EQ on my amp I can almost get the sound right, but then clarity suffers. Does anyone have any suggestion? I think my MIM Deluxe Jazz Bass sounds awesome, but the playability isn't there. I have a couple active EMG P-pickups laying around I could try.
