the c64 is an excellent bass as is ... the only problem I have is that it costs a lot more than a 4003 ...

Fun-duh-mental - I actually think you are onto something there. I understand your want of only the neck pup and clean wood where the bridge pup goes as you won't ever use it or its tonal variation, including the effect of the lack of wood in the neck strut. It would be one low end monster!

Thx - was just a thought from an old-school guy remembering the 60's. It finally occurred to me what I was going for was a 4005 thing. Ric neck-pup's are just so great at doing things like Van M's "Moon Dance". I'm telling ya', the depth and mellowness of a Ric 4001/3 on neck-pup, has to be the greatest untapped, natural resource in musicdom. Hmm..depth, fundamentals AND articulation...

I have a C64 and play mostly fingerstyle. Like Fun-duh-mental, I place my plucking hand at the end of the fretboard, and sometimes over the end of it. Most of the time the neck p/u is soloed. The bass is strung with TI flats. These combinations give the most gorgeous old-school tones, which is my favorite type of bass sound. The toaster is very earthy sounding, expecially when soloed. Also, I am much less apt to get finger noise and pops from plucking when I play this way.

On the other hand, when using a plectrum, I always use both pickups. With a Ric, there is just no other way when using a pick!

99% of the time I solo the neck pickup, and I play with a pick. That's the Roger Glover "Pictures of Home" type of sound. with a fresh set of roundwounds, of course.
