Hey all, So this bass is not giving me the tone as-is. I'm sure the light Luthite body has some influence, but I was wondering if any of you have changed pickups in one of these with a good result. I play in a metal/doom band. I use heavy distortion (Markbass Distorsore) but also clean at times. It seems like the stock pickups have a low output compared to passive basses and my SR405, I have to drive the Distorsore with an LPB to get it saturated. I'd like something with a higher output. I have a bass-heavy setting on my amp, but would like good mids as well. Trying not to break the bank at the same time... I'm seriously considering selling the bass, but it plays so well and is a lot easier on my shoulder than the 405. It's just so wimpy it can't drive my Distorsore at all. Thanks in advance!
