So, I'm having fun with my Ibanez GSR 200, and I noticed/ have a question about something:


I'm playing with my amp... When I play open strings I hear the sound perfectly, but When I fret (like, play on the third fret of the low string, then go to the 5th fret or something) , sometimes I hear "clicks". I ASSUME it's the frets touching the strings or something doing the clicks, and I was wondering, is this normal? (BTW, it only does that sound on the actual bass, the clicking sound does NOT come out of the amp)

It's normal to an extent. It could be low action, bad technique, etc.

Well, the clicking isn't that bad, people listening to me from away can't hear it...only I can and people sitting next to me...

its the low action and the strings hitting the frets, mostly either a bad setup or bad technique. Playing softer should clear it up a bit

Yeah, when I play softer the clicking becomes less noticeable but still there.

Definitely sounds like low action then.

I'll bring it to a tech soon. It's new + I already had fret buzz on the high string , thanks for the help!
