I just got a used Fender Jazz Bass (MIA) that has a Badass ll bridge and restrung it with D'addario half rounds. I am getting a trebbly metallic sound out of my A string. The others sound fine. On Talkbass someone said their badass made their fender more trebbly. Since I like to play bluesy or R and B type stuff that's no good. Any info, advice or suggestions would be great.

Sorry but I don't understand how your Badass bridge can affect tone let alone just one string.

Sounds like a string not sitting right in the slot.

I'm not saying that it IS the bridge, just something I read when searching about them. It was already on the bass when I bought it so I can't say what difference it is making, or not.

Thanks for the help guys. I did adjust the string and it is sounding better

I've had this problem myself as well.. if you hear unusual rattle, it's usually the nut or the bridge where the string isn't resting right. Glad you got that sorted out.
