Something that is starting to infuriate me is a lack of sustain for a B played on the D strng. There are many songs that I want to use this particular note for but it just dies. Thinking it was just a quirk of my Washburn XB 800 I got myself an SX Custom Jazz. But I found the same thing. I also have an old Maison that I picked up years ago and that has the same problem. 1 fret either side of the B has great sustain on all 3 but the B just doesn't cut it. Even the Aria pro that was my first bass had the problem but I thought that was because it was a cheap bass. Has anyone else struck this or am I the unluckiest bassist of all time? B.
