Hi, Recently purchased a 2010 American Standard Pbass that i play 99% with my fingers. It's beautiful. Here are some dramas i'm having with it though: The pickups are very tilted leaving me no room to rest my thumb. Should they be so tilted ? I'm getting the punchiest sound on the A & D strings, but not much low or high end on e & G strings, which i'm attributing to extensive tilt. I get a great tone playing with a pick, but a bit dry on the E & G strings with fingerstyle. What are the pro's and con's of keeping the pickups straight with no tilt (or minimum tilt) ??? What do the pro's do ??? Thanks for your help.
