    I've been having a pretty hard time getting my bass (MIM Jazz) to get the tone I want. I've been able to get it a couple of times, but my neise got to my amp and messed around with the EQ.

    The kind of tone I've been wanting is like Stefan Lessard's in "Crush" by DMB. I don't know wether I should do something with my amp or my pups, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    you could try leaving the amp flat and rolling off the tone knob. pluck by the neck.

    Thanks stingrayguy.

    That sounds perfect. I used the neck pup only with the tone knob at 0 with flat EQ and it sounds exactly like I wanted. Thanks a lot. :)
