For whatever reason, I decided to take an audition with a very heavy rock group this week. It required a five-string tuned down to B flat. I whipped out my old Ken Smith Burner 5 and fired up my SM-500 with an Eden 4X10 XLT. I was not really impressed with the sound of the Smith (I switched back and forth with my Stingray, and the MM sounded great). Are there any other players out there who have experience with these basses? What are your opinions of the tone and electronics? Oh, by the way, it has two J pickups. Thanks!
