Does it make a difference. I know that if you play closer to the bridge then it has a difference, but is there much difference between playing on the 15th fret and playing above the pickups?

Example, here is Lightning Wentz playing near what looks like the 16th-18th fret



You gotta love him right

Its too bad his sig bass, has one knob, and has a ****ty logo. If it was flat black with that pickguard and a maple neck, I would have that bass.Its more bassy to play towards the neck, and more trebly to play near the bridge.

Just want to make sure I have this right.
you're asking if you play on the neck(actually picking the strings somewhere on the neck) if it will sound different then when you play on the bridge?

Where you pick makes a huge difference to the tone. Try it and see for yourself. I prefer playing directly over the pickup usually.

Aside from that HUGE logo, that's one sexy bass
