Hello. I am shopping for a new (high-end) bass guitar. I play mostly Metal/Hard Rock music. I was interested in a bass that has the 3-band EQ because I feel that I can achieve a unique sound with these extra settings even before I go through an amplifier. http://www.espguitars.com/basses_anniversary.htm http://www.schecterguitars.com/spec.asp?id=114 http://www.schecterguitars.com/spec.asp?id=110 These are 3 basses that I have found which include this feature. I don't really like the color of the Stiletto bass which is why I may be interested in the Zebra wood bass. The ESP looks interesting as well except it is very plain looking. I was originally looking to purchase this bass: http://www.schecterguitars.com/spec.asp?id=104 Which I believe has more inexpensive electronics. Am I wrong in thinking that this 3-band EQ thing provides for a much more customized sound? Maybe there is something better than it? I don't really know. I was looking at Warwick's basses which don't have the 3-band EQ option in any of them. Maybe i'm a bit confused. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
