    Hi there;
    Recently i saw my yamaha trb6II and boguht a cort artisan 5.It features a neck-tru figured maple body and neck and bartolini mk-1 eqs.
    At first i liked its bright sound after my trb(ash body) but now i hate it because i can't get a low-mid boost.It has a 3-band eq but i can't get an mid-mid or low-mid boost, i only can get a low-mid boost...
    Also even when i play it unplugged it still sounds too bright and trebly.
    My question is: have you ever played an figured maple body insturment and do you think i can add more growl and punch(and even some deep sweet tone) to this insturment by replacing the pickups(i think about installing a quad-dual-single(neck-mid-brdige) coil pickups combination) and the eq? or ahould i try to sell this one and buy a new bass?
