Hey so I bought a bass yesterday, I've really played that much because I play guitar but anyway so I got this bass but I noticed that when I play the 4th E string it hits on the pickup closest to the neck. None of the other strings do this only the one. What would be something I could do to get it to stop?
Lower the pickup a bit on that side, or lift up the action.
Yamaha TRB1006
Fender MIA jazz bass
Hora Hybrid double bass
Hartke lh 500
Ev 606L
Epiphone les paul
lower the pickup underneath the E string.

EDIT: beaten to it. Or yes, raise the action
And here I was looking for a thread about the Police... so close.

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

Yeah you most certaintly need to lower the pickup. I had that problem with my first bass too

lol ya i meant string but it came out sting, sorry.

The irony out of this thread is that I thought I was going to be reading how Sting hits his bass with the tips of his fingers to play, watch the Message in a Bottle video and you'll know what I mean.
