    I just acquired a 2014 American Stand Jaguar bass.
    Cool look, very interesting bass.. however.
    Aside from not being into the slim J neck, the sound of it is not doing it so much.
    Being a P guy, I find this Jag sounds really good but loses note definition esp when playing higher up. Serial mode is even worse. Compared to my main P it doesn't come close.. Any ideas why? Would changing the pickups help iye?
    On a side note, I am used to flats (TI and LB) and this bass I left with rounds.

    I have a 2014 American Standard Jaguar, currently wearing TI jazz flats.

    It does the P bass sound perfectly.

    Would it be worth having it set up, especially the pickup heights?

    Try the proper strings first...easy enough.
