i got my hartke bass in the mail today from ebay, and its has fret buzz on the open strings up until the 3rd fret expect the A string hwere is stops at the 2nd fret, and it doesnt seem as though the neck is warped, is this bass crap?, can it be fixed easily?

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

ya the saddle are pretty high, i thought it was a messed up nut or something, because the action is pretty high around the upper frets

EDIT: should i still raise the action if the string is 3mm off the fretboard at the 24th fret and bout 0.1 at the 1st, or is it something else?
