I am new to the bass world having only started a few months ago. My problem is related to the tone I am getting (or rather, can't get!). Because of my liking for rock music, I play solely with a pick (medium gauge). However, I am not finding the sound that I want: smooth and soft bass. The guitar I've got is a Fender Squier P-Bass, and to get anywhere near the sort of tone I'm after, I have to roll the Tone control right down to zero (cutting out the high-end frequencies). Even then, when I listen to some of my favourite records, I still find that my sound is way off.

Can anyone offer me any advice please? it would be much appreciated!!
