I posted pictures of my bass a few weeks back here... http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=503126 its a beautiful JJ 4 stringer. overall, the bass sounds phenomenal right now. the tone is to die for when played by itself. but in the mix, i think the bass sounds a little weak. i hear it cutting through but i don't feel the impact or the punch. so lately i've been desiring a fatter, punchier/ballsier sound...similar to a P bass but with the option of having the J for cutting through the mix when i need to, and for general added "bite" to my tone. i really want to feel the notes right in the pocket. would having work done on the bass to convert it to a PJ setup help me find this tone, or could it possibly hinder the overall tone of the bass from losing wood in the conversion process? could it be my cabinet that needs an upgrade? i'm using a littlemark II and bergentino HT112 speaker cabinet in a three person band. i also don't really like the idea of drilling holes on an already beautiful bass, even though the work would be covered up by a pickguard. thanks in advance for the suggestions!
