    If you want Twang buy my J-bass pickups.

    A friend claims my tone in this track is pretty twangy.

    The single coil position on my SR5 is very, very close to that tone. Very twangy. Cuts through easily. I'm liking this setting better than series lately.

    Could you also change the pots to 500 and capacitator 0.5 so you can get more treble, but it seems like you got it the tone.
