hey

im all new 2 bass but i have quite a big problem

i have a fender standard p-bass and i think the g string is stuffed

when ever i play anything below the 10th fret the sound comes out really wierd

like its a short and sssccccchhhhh sound

everything on the g string 10th fret and above the sound comes out fine

iv had the bass for about 2 months i think and when i first got it it never had this problem when i first got the bass i just recently realized this

is it the tuning or the string or something?

plz help

Sounds like the string action needs to be adjusted, resulting in fret buzz.

Raise the action for that string.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
