I am in the process of trying to decide between upgrading to an American Fender Jazz, and a Music Man Stingray. The question is: I am kind of a new bass player, and I find that when I am playing my MIM Jazz, I anchor my thumb on the neck pickup, and my fingers play between the pickups. When I play a Stingray at the music store, I find it odd to be anchoring my thumb so far towards the bridge on the single pickup. Playing so far back on the string gives the strings a stiff feel. I some times do that intentionaly on my Jazz for a different sound. Are MM players anchoring somewhere else?
