    I have 2 basses...both 5 strings...both active. Here is my dilemma.

    Right now, I prefer the sound out of my Ibanez SR505 to my TBC AP-500M.

    BUT...I feel more confident (not comfortable, I am comfy with the necks on both) with the string spacing on the TBC (it is wider). Something about the wider spacing just removes some un-easiness...which is strange to me since it is newer to me.

    What does this mean? What would you do? Any suggestions (other than just spending more time with them? (My wife is already getting jealous:D)
  2. The best suggestion I can come up with is to experiment with different EQ settings, maybe different strings, maybe even new pickups until you can find a tone that you're happy with.
