    I have not touched this Squier in months. I remember the B string sounding better than this. Does it sound muddy to you?

    Thru phone audio, not really.

    Are you saying you could not tell?

    Sounds rather un-muddy to me.

    I wouldn't describe it as muddy, but it sounded like the volume of the b string was just a tich lower than the other strings. Could be you're playing it softer.

    I raised that pickup maybe two turns and now it is loud and clear!

    Pulling this bass out of mothballs has been a blast! I will never be a P-bass only player, but a good P-bass has such a pleasing sound. Right now, I have Sadowsky Black Label roundwounds on this bass. I am really tempted to buy some flats, and go all out for that classic tone.
