Im thinking of buying a Rogue Violin Bass. Im really interested in the shorter scale and the facted that its a Paul McCartny look alike AND its only 200 bucks (I mean come on!.) Now, from what I've read it gives off more of a deep, warm, resonant tone like a upright bass. I'm all for that, but my music style really veries. Here's were the strings come in. If I were to change the stock strings (I think there flat wounds) to my preference (boomers) would it make a noticable difference or do the pickups got there hearts set on that certain sound? thanks for the help.
