Hi everyone,
I just bought a new bass (Ibanez SR300DX soundgear). The thing sounds awesome and plays beautifully but the one problem is the action. IT'S SO LOW!!!!i like to use a pick a lot and the low action is giving me so much fretbuzz its scary. even when i play softly with my fingers it buzzes on all the strings. I'm sure this is probably just some shipping precaution and i know that it can be fixed really easily but i'd need to go into montreal to get it done professionally so i want to know how to do it myself. At this point in time all i know about adjusting action is that you have to do something to the bridge saddles.
Thanx in advance,
