Hello, I have a 2008 Corvette Doublebuck German made 4 string. It has swamp ash body, an ovangkol neck and 2 MEC humbuckers. My question is, why does this bass sound thumpy and woody and a jazzman (MEC humbucker and neck jazz) Streamer LX that I played recently sounds so bright and growly like a Spector? Is it the neck and body woods? I thought my Corvette (which I bought used) would be really aggressive and growly with the 2 humbuckers. The controls seem to all work and you can change the sound somewhat but it doesn't get quite the sound I had imagined and ends up being some variation of the woody, darker sound I mentioned. The sound is very nice for what it does and has tons of sustain, I am just a bit confused. Can you do anything to the preamp/pickups to make it sound more like the sound I hear in my head (Spector or Streamer-like)? I am hoping the answer given is not "go out and buy a Spector or a Streamer". Haha, thanks.
