Hi. I've been following awhile but this is my first time posting. I am hoping I can get a few questions answered about upgrading an Ibanez. I have a 2002 SR405 and I love the way if plays but feel like its lacking in tone. I feel like it sounds a flat or muddy ( I'm not sure if that's the right words for what I mean but I think you'll get the idea). I cannot afford a whole new bass and don't think anyone else makes a thin neck with tight string spacing like that anyway. But I was wondering if a new preamp or pickups would help? I think a preamp would be cheaper and easier to figure out but if it wouldn't make big difference then I wouldn't bother. I'd like to keep a three band eq so I can dial in a deep full tone for finger style and then a punchy growl for playing with a pick. If anyone has experience getting the most out of a SR405 I'd love to hear it. I play worship at my church and also play punk/rock stuff. My main amp is a Carvin MB210 in case that matters. Thanks!
