I love my bass, but there is a certain tone I am after that I just can't get with it.
I will post a sound clip of almost exactly what I want Saturday when i get home, but for now just know I want freaking funky as hell tone.
I am going for a mahogany body with a wenge/ebony neck and an ACG pre in it. The body is routed for ASB 5 pups, but I want something else in there.
What are my other options that would fit here, or if the body could be re-routed for bigger pickups that's cool too.
The ASB 5 is 4.280x1.292

thanks guys!

The ASB5 is the same size as the Bart P2.  Check out Delano or Nordstrand, my two favorites.

I have been looking at the Nordstrands lots - I am just not sure which would be the closest to the tone I am after. I am really familiar with jazz bass, p bass and MM pickups, but when it comes to soap bars I know nothing and don't really know what to look for.
Right now I am leaning towards the Fat Stack - what is your experience with them?
