Hi , anyone have experience with a sonus special 5er ? The neck pickup on the special has been placed closer to the back pickup resulting in a naturally punchier mid range which was Zon's intention with this model . Due to the pickup placement the slap sound suffers , ie none of that 'scooped' marcus type thing !! The bass has a Bartolini pre with hi and low eq only . My question is if I change the pre to one a mid selectable eq and or perhaps change the pickups as well ,will I be able to get closer to the sound I envision , or is there no real solution due to the pickup positions ?
