I love the FEEL of my '85 Westone Dynasty. The neck is spectacular and there's no denying the quirky-shredtastic silhouette of the body and headstock. It's super comfy to play - and the neck - it's fast and reaching the all the way up to the 22nd fret is super easy. The only drawback is the SOUND - especially the aforementioned easy to reach high notes. They're anemic. The pickup is a mid-80s Japanese P which is somewhere between soapbar and humbucker sized - placed a bit further back towards the bridge than a traditional Fender P. Electronics are passive. Like most of you, I have arguably too many basses already. Because I like them. And the one constant among them all is that regardless of passive/active, J or P pickups, I almost always use a blend of two pickups. I just cannot find the right full range with one pickup. I tried using a SansAmp Bass Driver to EQ the Dynasty into something wonderful, and have failed thus far. So here's the question; Do I spend the money to router and modify the Westone into a dual pickup bass which may cost more than the current value - and will most likely devalue the bass in the process? Or, do I just accept the bass for what it is and either use sparingly (or sell)? I would imagine one or two of you have found yourselves in this very predicament. Your insight is very welcome.
