    Has anyone else had this problem when using a maple necked 76 Precision ? It sounds fine at low volume but when playing in a band situation the D & G strings lose the fundamental and all I can hear is attack.
    Same bass with a rosewood neck - no problem.
    I've just bought a 78 Aria P-bass (also maple neck)and this does exactly the same. I use a Sansamp RBI/QSC RMX850/Eden 410xlt or 2xCXM110.
    I've tried raising the pickups but I'm wondering if this isn't making it worse. Any ideas?
