    I'm getting a new custom made bass, and I'm looking for advice on pup and eq selection. The bass will be semi acoustic lik a ken laurence chambre bass. it's a 5string tuned with a high c. I've been looking at aero (k series) and nordstrand pick-ups and demeter, mike pope and east (u retro) eq's. I'm looking to get a softer sound, any advice would be great!
