Appreciate any opinions: I bought the geddy bass because i needed an extra bass to play with flat wounds (pyramids) tuned up a half step for a few songs, and i liked the neck feel and action a lot for the money. But i was VERY disappointed in the sound. Thin and very low output. I expected my very active 18 volt Status to be much louder (it's louder than EVERYTHING) but I was amazed at how MUCH louder even my Rickenbacker 4001CS is than the Fender. So I put in Duncan 1/4 pounder jazz pick-ups (on Mark Egan's recommendation)... but i am sujrprised to find not much difference! Not only is the tone similar, but the level is still quite low. There just seems to be something about the bass itself, which baffles me... so any other ideas?
