Hello again! Unfortunately, my new bass is giving me some problems... After a few weeks of being put together, and after a few days of intensive use (rehearsals), the acoustic tone of the bass, especially when slapped, lost some lows and a lot of highs. It's not just the strings - the same type of strings, DR Lo Riders, are on my Corvette, too, and they still have those slap highs even though they are much older. I have some ideas what may be causing this. The prime suspect is the polyurethane hardcoat being too thick. The other one is the not-so-perfect neck joint. The neck is a bit "loose" in the neck pocket (by which I mean I don't have to force it to take it out, it comes out more or less easily; also, the neck's end and the pocket have only a few contact points). The five neck bolts are tight, though. Maybe the weight-reducing cavity? For more info, check the link in my sig Thanks in advance!
