i play an OLP stingray. i can never stand the sound of a 2 pickup bass with both pickups on equal volume. that phasey sound drives me insane. so i always turn one pickup down a hair to fix the phase problem. what ive found is that i always favored the neck side. this wasnt that strange to me, as i always roll to the neck side of a jazz as well. but today i played a lakland 5502, and despite the preamp and sharp fret edges, it was a wonderful playing bass. great B string, easy to play maple neck. good fretboard pop. playing with the controls, i see a massive MM style pickup, thats home base for me, and a j pickup out front. so i roll to the j pickup. not bad, a little woofy. i go to the MM side. ew.. phase issue. so i hit the toggle switch. i tried both positions back and forth. switched between the mid pickup and the neck pickup as well. tried every combination imaginable, and i have found that i like that neck side MM position better than the J neck side. im not even entirely sure what to call that position or where it is in terms of measurement. but i cant get enough of it. anyone else a fan of JUST that spot?
