Ok, see if anyone can help me out. Im a rock bass player with a six string and when i finger pick it sounds very metalicy. It sound like im playing with thimbles on my fingers. Think of the Iron Maiden bass sound times 10. With the same settings on my amp other basses don't so this. Soooooooooooooo, does anyone know what is going on? Do I need new pickups? If so I play with an Ibanez soundgear SR406. Is it worth putting really nice pickups in? If you need anymore info let me know.
