Hey Ya'll, I'm looking for suggestions to make a cheap lightweight short scale p-bass copy sound more thumpy. It's real comfy and looks great so I keep trying to make it work for me even though it currently sounds kind of thin and snappy and sometimes kind of honkey or howly. It sounds very good to me unplugged. I've tried flatwounds, foam under the strings by the bridge, high mass bridge, felt on the bridge saddles, SPB-3 QP PU's, and I EQ the piss out of it. It's heading in the right direction, but still not there yet. Any suggestions or am I beating a dead horse? I mostly play country and R&B so I go for the thumpy in the pocket sound. I have other basses that fit the bill, but I keep trying to work with this one because it's so light.
