I don't know if it's just me, but for some reason my Stingray seems... incapable of getting that classic Stingray fingerstyle and slap tone. It's a 3-band EQ, natural ash/maple, and I just put some 40-100 DR Hi Beams on it, as well as a new battery. I'm playing it through a Markbass CMD102P and 115HF, if knowing the amp helps. My tonal reference is Aeroplane by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Cliche, I know, but I'm desperate for getting my Ray to sound something like that. Any help is appreciated!
