I'm noticing quite a difference in sound qualities between my 6 string equipped with Bartolini pickups and my 5 that has MECs. They're both Thumbs. I put new strings on the 5 a couple months back, replaced the 6 with new ones yesterday, so strings aren't an issue, same gauge, nickel wound. The 5 is much growlier and brighter, whereas the 6 is quite muted in comparison. I'm thinking that maybe it's the pickups. Anyone out there have experience with both and can tell me what their impressions of the sound quality of the 2 are? Many thanks!
