I presently have a newer (2000 or 2001) EB MM Stingray 4 string with Maple neck. I play thru an SWR 750 Head w/ goliath III and S.O.B. cabs. I've noticed a couple of things/issues when playing my stingray that I would like some help and advice: -When I play on he high frets (12th and up), it seems as though it sounds as there is an ever so slight flanger/chorus effect on when it comes thru the amp. I'm not using any effects, obviously. I'm just playing straight thru the amp. Maybe it's me, maybe it's my ears but I don't notice it on my other bass including my Stingray 5. Any one else every experience that? Is it something that a simple set up can fix? Any suggestions? -I've also noticed that the G string seems very dead lately, especially when I play around the 9th & 10th fret. The strings on the is bass are only a month old. I only play about once to twice a week for 2 to 3 hours each. The other strings seem fine. Is this a set up issue as well? Speaking of set ups, do you other stingray owners notice that your necks need to be adjusted often? Maybe it's me, but it seems that I'm almost in constant need of a set up. Is it possible that I have a weak trust rod or something? Thanks for your help and advice. Much appreciated.
