Doesn't bother me too much either - there are enough ways of blurring
the edges (fuzz-boxes, oscillators, ring-modulators *heh-heh*)
My problem is that everything between my elbows and the loudspeaker
conspires to produce scuzzy blues-rock.  However, between my V-Amp and
some of the more extreme settings on my Alesis GuitarFX, I can at least
make swooshy noises & sinister industrial/interstellar clatter.

You could always *koff* BUY NEW STRINGS!
I have also seen a debate concerning the whys & wherefores of taking
your bass strings off, tossing 'em in a pan of boiling water for half an
hour and then restringing when dry.  Sounds iffy to me, but if your
strings are in a terrible state in the first place, what's to lose??
