Thanks for the little story. No need to look up the date unless you really want to. I know he started playing it some time in 1990. It was a long time ago!

Quick update. I didn't think to try this earlier, but the bass works. It's just fully on (full volume). In a pinch, I could just get a volume pedal I guess.

Still. I hope there's a solution to...

1987 BT6 G & C strings "tinny" sounding

So I have a set of Tapercore Mediums on it, as suggested, but those top two strings are still less "round" sounding than the other 4. It's been suggested (elsewhere) that I play with the pickup...

Understood. There are no issues with the bass at all. It's well-loved.

Do you have a recommendation for wiping it down after playing? Just a clean microfiber cloth? Maybe something else?
