Ugh. I can't believe I'm typing this. I got my new bass today, a Skyline Glaub strung BEAD w/ TI Jazz flats . The B is awesome . The A is great. The D is great. The E is crap to the point of being unuseable. Insanely zingy and thin with low end comparable to the A . Now as some of you might know, I had the same issue with my MIM P. I got my first set of TI Jazz flats issue maybe 6 months. Same exact issue. DUDE is kind of enough to send me a replacement. No change. DUDE is gracious enough to send me another replacement. This string is actually better. The same problems, just to a lesser extent. I figure something is wrong acoustically with my bass (sloppy neck joint). I love the other strings so much and have become so accustomed to the low tension I without hesitation ordered the Bob Glaub to be strung BEAD confident that it would be OK. I was sorely mistaken . I took the better sounding TI Jazz flat E off my MIM P and stick it on the Glaub. A good deal better but not quite there yet. But because the string is not cut to the right length I switched them back. Has anyone else ever had this problem??????????? I've emailed Thomasik-Infeld. I'll let you guys know what they say. My new bass is great. I was afraid the B was gonna be muddy but it sounds great! The Fralins sound so much more musical than the pu's in the MIM P. The tone is actually useable with the tone knob pegged either way.
