Re: wants to reduce the brightness of ash body
I think playing with the eq won't help much...
the real problem is coming out from the guitar, let me explain :
the way I'm playing result somewhat buzz on some strings, even on an open string, is not a dead buzz, it's more like 'twang'.
adjusting the neck relief? done
adjusting the string action? done
so I'm comparing side by side : same guitar ( RGs), same set up, same string gauge.
one is ash , one is basswood.
acoustically ( unplugged), i can hear the ash is brighter.
plug it in to an amp : the twang on the ash get worse, like I said..even on an open string it twangs.. damn it, i just can't stand it.
I read somewhere that clear coat on guitars effected to the brightness also, that's why I asked, in Ibanez... does it have something to do with the tone?
If I remove the paint, will it be less bright or more bright?
