I have a Yamaha BBG5A, and as much as I liked it to start out with, I'm somewhat bored with it. I'm not really gettinginto the "jazz" type tone, and find myself grabbing my P basses instead. Sadly the Yamaha doesn't have the punch of my P basses. Other than the tone, I love this bass. It's light weight, fast neck, wide spacing, tight B, and gorgeous wood and finish. I'm just bored with the tone. It has too many highs and mids, and not nearly enough lows. It has great growl, but no punch. I can get a tone I somewhat like, but only through my EQ pedal. Is there anything I can do to change this bass and make it a little more desirable to play? One idea that I have was converting from Jazz to humbuckers. this is the pup style I was thinking of. The Yamaha Nathan East Sig. My bass is nearly identical to this one, with not as many knobs, and Jazz pups instead of the soapbars. Here she is. I've thoght about selling or trading it for something I might like more, but I'm not sure I want to part with it.
