    I was 5-string shopping and found a "The Bass Company" with a MM style p/up with a spalted maple top and an ebony fretboard for $799.00 US.
    It was tempting.had a buttery bottom,as BP likes to say,and it got me wondering...are MMs butterier or are standard bartolinis ? or was it from that ebony board ?
    I'm thinking of a five string with a single p/up.I already have a P and a J,both four bangers.I don't slap/pop much,play mostly fingerstyle Blues and Gospel.
    So which p/up has the most "pasteurized" tone ?

    My thoughts are the Ken Smith soapbars.
