Sound-wise, as compared to my other bass (which has Seymour Duncan
Bassline soapbar pickups with a Seymour Duncan preamp), the regular
finger style sounds better than my other bass, a smoother,
well-rounded sound. The slapping tone isn't as thick as I'm used to.
That being said, it took me a while to get the sound that I wanted out of
my other bass, so the fact that I got my regular style sound better the
first time around is very impressive. Also, I am really glad that you put
the thumb-rest on my bass, having it there makes it a ton easier going
back and forth from regular style to slapping.
