Hey there Brewmeister:
Sorry for the delay in answering in the first place. Just got too busy lately, and my working schedule got somewhat outta control ...shit! Hate when that happens...
Anyway, and going to the question you posted a few inches below, I'd have to agree with our esteemed colleague and friend Scott Hubbell here: start with everything flat and both pickups on, and only then decide if you need some EQing. Scott has a frightening slap tone (not to mention his enviable chops), which you can check out from the great lesson he posted at 44Hz.com, so he knows what he's talking about.
If I may add my $0.02 worth, I'd like to give this advice: as a general rule, slap tone benefits from a little boost in the lows and highs and a little cut in the midrange. It works for me at least. Give it a try but, as Scott wisely stated, don't overlook the rule of starting with everything flat.
That's about it. Promise to answer quicker next time. Serioulsy. Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,

El Pájaro.
