How do you have your pickup settings? Do you have it mostly towards the bridge or, do you have it towards the neck? If you do not have two separate volumes for each pickup and you have a blend, where do you have your settings? I tend to have my blend more to the neck pickup when "slapping" and when "using my fingers" I tend to have the pickups to the bridge. Please let me have your input on the above.
