Long story short, I modded an Affinity P, that actually sound really good before the mods. I put 51 RI electronics and a Fralin Pup. For the maiden voyage, I put DR low riders (45-105) on, but was surprised at how bright they were. I bought them from a guy that put them on his bass, and quickly decided they werent for him. I dont think its the mods, because they still sound kind of twangy without an amp. Question: Is there a break in period for these? I also bought some fenders off ebay that I put on a Tbird that I just got, and it came alive. The strings that were on there probably have never been changed since I got it off a kid. I would swop the two, but the DRs were cut for the P by the luthier that does my setups, and I doubt if the DRs will fit the T. I will probably end up with flats on the P, and the DRs would probably sound better on my J..
