Alright. I am having a problem with my Sterling. It is a maple fretboard and right now I have the strings that came with it on it. I have been playing with what I think is a very poor 250watt peavey amp that I am borrowing. The problem I feel is that I can no get enough low end out of it. I play very bass heavy music like reggae and do not need too much versatility. I am beginning to feel that once again I have made the wrong decision. I understand that changing the type of strings can make a difference, but is it really going to make that much of a significant difference in the bass?I suggested flatwounds to the guy at GC and he said that they would sound like **** on this bass. Then again, why do I always feel like there are car salesman and not musicians talking to me at GC everytime I am there. I always tone the treble down and keep the bass up with the eq. Has anyone else ever experienced these problems with the Sterling.Maybe I was spoiled with playin that Stingray for the months waiting for the Sterling to come in, but it feels like there is something I want that the Sterling can not offer. The neck and body is great, but the sound is not there. Am I goin crazy or what here?
