    Need a little help here.

    I've had a musicman stingray 5 for a few months and I'm just not in love with it. Plays amazing but the MM sound just isn't my cup of tea. Anyone had any luck with the bassline pickups and or switching out the cap to get a little smoother less midrange sound. Open to suggestions. I'm a PBass guy so less is more for me.

    The Duncan Bassline is still more of a focus of being toward the original Musicman SR4 sound, alnico pickup might be a tad smoother, but still 'in your face' sound. You might want to look more at a Bart system if you're wanting to get away from that characteristic.

    If you decided to move the MM for something else (and it's still stock), please PM me.

    If you can't get it where you want it with upstream EQ, sell it and move on.
