Hey all, while on a visit to a local music store I played a Monterey Jazz bass copy, Natural finish, Maple fretboard, looked very nice. I plan on using this as a project bass as it 'feels' perfect in my hands. The problems I have is once plugged in the only string that sounded good was the E, it had massive growl but the other 3 didn't, my questions is, would new strings, pickups, nut and bridge help even out all the strings? Here's where I need some advice, what mods?! Graphite nut maybe?, BadassII seems the standard on a jbass and I have nfi on what pickups. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, but please tell my why you suggest the mods, cause I am new to modding Ohh I nearly forgot, the bass played pretty good and it hadn't even been set-up and its only AU$360!! (cheaper than a Squier) Edit: if it helps I play mainly Hard Rock, old skool metal and hip-hop metal.
