I have a ****ty Squire By Fender Jazz (am replacing it this christmas) and my strings are so high off the neck that it hurts badly. One day I actually started bleeding. I have the saddles as low as they could possibly go. I mean if I loosen them any more the screw will probably fall out. What can I do?

This is basically my guitar - but right handed.

It sounds like you my friend need a truss rod adjustment. In your case, you would want to tighten it a bit. Loosen up your strings, give it a half turn to the right, tune your bass back up and check it. Repeat if necessary. Unfortunately, I cannot help you with your bleeding problem!

That's your first problem.

The answer here is that you need to strengthen up them lady fingers, girly man.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

dont you mean a Squire Jazz bass by Fender? you haven't been playing long have you? like someone said, you need a truss rod adjustment, and some callousses wouldnt hurt either. a new bass this christmas is probably unneccessary. i have a squire p bass and its great for the price, but thats just my two cents.
