i have owned 3 jazz basses..and i love them...but for my next bass im thinking of either another j bass...a p-bass..or a spector, what do the spectors sound like? do they have alot of growl if i use a pick? how do they sound stacked up against maybe an ernie ball musicman? im looking for a very versatile bass with tons of growl and punch and plenty of output!!! ive also experienced some bad things with those types of pick ups..mainly a sort of muddiness, i owned a hartke ak-somethingorother, and the pickups sounded like sh*t, so now anything that even looks like that pickup i get scared of, can anyone help me out here?
