Let me begin by saying that I got to catch these guys last night again for the first time since I was 16. Amazing show. It's awesome to see how far they've gotten. I also wanna please ask to refrain from dumb comments like "yadda yadda he's ghey, why does he have a sig, blink sux, omg he can't play because he doesn't have a tone knob, etc..." Seriously it's useless, let's talk about the bass. Now last night his tone was phenomenal. Perhaps not the best for jazz or slap, but a great straight forward rock sound which is what I'm looking for. Some time ago he experimented with reversing and rotating the positioning of his quarter pound p bass pickup so the higher split covers the G and D while split closer to the bridge covers E and A. Basically this gives you more low end on your high strings, and more high end on your low strings. Pretty smart design. Here's a visual example on his myspace: http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/ind...ndID=55012634&albumID=490678&imageID=17926048 Anyways I'm planning on building a new bass out of warmoth parts and I was thinking about trying this concept out. Has anyone else had any experience with this configuration? If you have share your input I'm also not sure where I could even get a P bass body with the routing carved out in this reverse configuration. I'm not trying to be Hoppus, just experimenting with something new. Your thoughts? Is it even worth it?
