I learned to slap on my late 80's japanese fender jazz that i bought used and it had emg p/j pickups in it. This thing had a fat slap tone, definitely rough around the edges, cuz it was a 200$ bass, but when i would hit that E string it was FAT. I got a modulus Q5, dig the tone, especially with a pick. However, something just doesn't feel right when I slap that thing. The E string feels all stiff and doesn't fully sound out when I hit it. It just seems dampened and of a lesser volume than the rest of the strings. The Jazz just had every string sound more thick and full, and when I slapped it, it just had a feel that I could groove easier to. The stiffness of the modulus is getting to me. Is there any way I could fix this? : string recommendations, is the the scale length thats messing with me?, or maybe adjusting the pickup or bridge height of each string? help!!
