    Hey guys. I love Afi and I think Hunter is such an awesome bassist, his stage presence is awesome. He uses Fender American Jazz and has this really crunchy growly tone, I was just wondering (for people who are familiar with his tone) how do i get it? I have a Fender Jazz also...do you but the turn the neck up and tone, and leave the bridge completly rolled off? What about amp settings? Thanks Alot

    Well, you need to see what kind of amp and cab setup he uses. I have always been a fan of the sansamp bass driver for good overdrive. It's good and smooth. Not too crunchy.
