Right now I play a Bass Company Jazz. I also have a MIM Fender Jazz with Barts. I play in a band in which we play very noisy stuff, and the guitarist uses crazy distortions and pedals. My favorite tone (that I've heard) is a flat jazz tone, but I have a hard time cutting through the mix with it. What would you recommend? I have been wanting to try a Stingray lately, and I haven't liked the "P" sound in the past, but I'm thinking of trying that again. Also, I play with my fingers (no picks). Thanks in advance for your help. P.S. a very rough mix of my bands stuff is on our myspace page, linked to in my signature. That will give you some idea. A better recording will be up in the next couple weeks.
