String Thru or Top Load

Hey, this is more to get some activity in the bass zone but what do you prefer? String Thru or Top Load? Personally I like string thru, but my new bass is top load.

So I didn't want to answer.

well on a guitar it looks like this - http://www.guitarxpress.com/gx/RB6bdy.JPG
So, I'd assume it would be similiar on a bass.

I didn't check...
But seriously, Musicians Friend has a very bad selection of basses unless you're into Fender, and if your into Fender, shame on you.

I would never play a fucking daisy rock bass, im not gay! I have a B.C. Rich Beast, it has a great sound to it, but i didnt like the picups, so i changed em, other than that its a pretty sweet bass, http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...ase_pid/511206/ oh, and Im not into fender either, in my opinion, fenders are more for soft rock and all that other shit

Haha, nah i play warwick, although there is nothing wrong with fenders, they are good solid basses, and can be used in any style.
