Note: I mainly play guitar but bought this beginner bass in case I ever got bored or fancied trying a bass riff...

Yeah, I bought this bass ages ago and played it for a while and it's been put away for months. I was recently listening to "roundabout" by Yes and was inspired to learn the bass riff, so I got my bass out. I remembered why I had put it away, the action was too damned high. It is really hard to play and when you slap it you can't hear ****. I know this isn't a problem with my technique, because I visited the london guitar show, tried an Ibanez bass with low action and it was so easy to play, and slap.

So my point... is it possible to lower the action? I haven't tried myself yet because I don't know how... the bridge looks flimsy and I don't wanna touch it (without advise).



Thanks.

Cheers, I usually read FAQ's but this is my first time in the bass section and just jumped straight to a new thread.
