Hi i just started on bass and i've been reading in the threads here and there, but i don't get some things especially on p-ups for bass. i know somewhat the p-up shapes, but what tones are characterised with what shape? and how do preamps fit in with bass vs on a guitar? i know this is a different instrument with it's own way of being approached to playing than a guitar with it's own characteristics and in so trying to keep this healthy attitude i am trying to learn all i can, so if you guys would be so kind to give me your insight in this area of p-ups i would appreciate it. in advance to all who post i want to say thank you. again, i am new, so please be nice, and please don't hate the guitar player.
