    To quote from my thread on the main Bass guitar page:

    I'm planning on building a bass on Warmoth, (or somewhere cheaper, if you guys have any suggestions) and I'm looking for a particular tone. I want something that's Nice, bright, and clean in the upper tones. Like, While my Guitar Gently Weeps clean. (Also, I'd like to get something similar to Cliff Burton's solo from Orion out of it when it's distorted) I'm also looking for Sludgy, Crunchy Lows with lots of Kick. Think Steve Harris clarity, Meshugga crunch, and... well, I don't listen to much pure sludge metal, but something nice and thick/oozing. It doesn't necessarily have to do all of this at once, but I'd like something that'll have this much variety.


    I'm currently looking at Blackouts versus normal ASB 5's.

    The Blackouts say that they've got clean highs, where as the ASBs are more natural. Is there anyone who can give me a more in depth explanation here on what they're getting at, and also, are there any suggestions for Pick-ups/Pedals that'll help me achieve all of the above?

    I'm used to an imageboard where threads usually die in an hour, if not sooner. My apologies.
