    I think the neck pick up (soloed) tone is largely dependent on playing style and EQ choice. The slap issue is down to personal preference but, as I’ve said before, I play slap/pop on these basses -...

    I use EB cobalt flat wounds on my fretless Stingray - they give a sound more towards a round wound without scuffing up the fretboard (got Thomastik flats on my Stingray Classic).
