I sort of recently bought a Robin Freedom Bass used and only recently had the time to pick it up and give it a good whirl. I usually play with my fingers but on a recent song decided to play with a pick. My amp is kinda buzzy in the first place, not sure if the electricty inthe rehersal space is properly grounded or if its the head itself, but anyway when i play with a pick i get this horrlble electric clicky noise sound, kinda like static, some of the time. I've read that it could be from the "action" being out of whack....i bought it onine and i'm wondering if someting could have come loose diring shipping? Could one of the pickups be too high? I don't know, i thought when you bought something that was supposed to be well crafted that you didn't have these many problems.

anyway, i found this post "New bass, action too low, need 2 know how 2 fix it", and i'm wondering if i should give it a shot or if i should take it to a professional, and maybe how much something like that will cost?

thanks so much!!!
