I have a MIM P-Bass (2006? It has a 60th anniversary logo on the back of the headstock) for 3 years and an Acoustic B100 that I've had for about a year and a half. The problem is that the setup I have is way too bright and top-heavy, and I want to have a less agressive tone, but still be noticed. Sort of a felt-not-heard type of thing. How can I do this without just turning into thunder? More like a Stefan Lessard type of tone, rather than, say, Flea.

Also, and this is probably related, the output jack on my bass has some issues. When the screws on the pickguard are nice and snug (as they should be), it cuts some of the top end and becomes muffled. In other words, if there is pressure on the jack, there is a loss of the top end.

Thanks guys,

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

Try not changing strings for a long time.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.
roll off the tone slightly.

Flatwound strings would probably help too.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think
