I borrowed a friends bass (1998 Fender precision), and noticed that the strings are creating a hell of a buzzing sound. How do you set the action up right on this? The tailpiece has spring loaded screws and an allen key type screw to raise and lower the strings. Being I'm a drummer and trying to learn a bit of the bass, I'm sort of stuck how to get the fret buzzing to stop or minimize.I don't want to tamper with his bass and screw it up, although this looks like a fairly simple job once you know what to do.
Any suggestions how to set up the action right would be much appreciated.
