Ibanez Soundgear SR800

    Hey guys, I recently purchased a 1990 Ibanez soundgear SR800, and I am looking to get an Alex Webster tone, similar to the tone he had on The Bleeding, out of it. I know he used an SR1500 on The Bleeding, so I was wondering if that tone is possible on an sr800? Also, it seems to me that the tone of the bass is not a very fat one, my Aria deluxe jazz bass has a fatter tone than the Ibanez, does this sound right or could something be wrong with the pickups? Would changing the strings from Rotosounds to DRs make any difference? Thanks for your help.

    How do you have the tone controls set? You be able to get all kinds of tones from that. Boost the lows some and maybe take the treble down a little.
