Apologies if I missed any of these in another reply, but: - What gauges are you using? Heavier strings will even out your pick attack a little. - Where are you picking relative to the bridge? There's less give in the strings closer to the bridge. - What picks are you using? Softer picks will be more...
^ I followed the last advice ;) I ended up grabbing a 1/8" Dremel bit, taping off the surrounding areas and nibbling away at the corners freehand. Came out very well - even if it hadn't, it's under the pickguard. Used the smallest stone Dremel bit to carefully sand a tighter radius into the pickguar...
Hey gang, I scored an EGC bolt-on neck, which is ostensibly a drop-in for Fender basses. I need to tighten the corner radii of the neck pocket for it to fit properly though - what's the best method? I have following bits and a plunge router, as well as a dremel.
Can recommend the Slingerstrap system for getting the weight off your shoulders. Makes it harder to walk, though, and you will definitely have to adjust your playing position.

The worst I ever had was a Green Tea at BR. I was thinking along the lines of green tea pannacotta, but it tasted just like generic green tea like you might get at Coles etc. Not even a scoop of coconut icecream could save it.
The jack will be grounded to the control plate anyway. So long as it's done up tightly it will be just fine - if you use a star washer to keep a little pressure on it, it shouldn't work loose.

Gads, this again... You cannae change the laws of physics. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: look at Meshuggah when dealing with extremely low tuned guitars. The bass cannot reasonably be expected to remain an octave below the guitars, so don't try. EQ for aggressive mids and exploit the i...
