Hi Steve, In your opinion, can a non graphite neck sound as plush as a graphite? I do realize it's a matter of personal opinion, but my Ibanez SR400 series bass feels so nice and has a fast neck! The only problem is that it isn't quite as sweet sounding as a Modulus or Zon bass. I suppose when it comes down to it, its all in the hands to a certain extent. What can I do to add some life to my fretless tone? Any particular pedals you would recommend using? Cheers, Joe B.
