I'm pleasantly surprised by my buddy's StingRay. He's loaning it to me while my Roscoe's being fixed (it's getting some fret work to reseat a fret that lifted while I was traipsing around Vegas on a dry 100+ degree weekend). The StingRay seems to have some interesting idiosyncracies (with respect to some of the other basses I'm used to). For one thing, it has a huge midrange and treble presence, which really helps it cut through on stage. For another, it doesn't have a lot of deep bass, I'm having to bump the bass control on the amp a couple of notches (again, relative to some other basses). Since the StingRay seems to be a studio standard (more or less), I wanted to try recording with it while I have it, and thought I'd ask about the characteristic midrangey MusicMan sound. What do people do in the studio, do they EQ down the midrange, or leave it alone? Also one other tidbit, the low B seems to be a tad less bright than the other strings. Is that normal, or should I tweak the action a little (with my buddy's blessing of course)?
