: : the "ear" on one tuning peg shaft was a little loose and rattled.

: : Problem has been fixed.

: Was this fix a big deal, or a small thing to get fixed?

: I too have come up with a loose ear, last week. I have it temporarily fixed (for the most part) by stringing a large rubber-band between my "E" key and the loose "A" key. A friend of mine who's a guitar luthier said to just put some super glue on it, but that thought doesn't sit so well on me.

The problem was fixed temporarily/indefinitely with a small piece of
duct tape. I think the super glue is a good idea, if it will hold.

I guess the best way is to upgrade with better hardware. I might do that.

I still like the Chinese Bass, but it could be as Reed said that a Wilfer
is constructed better. The Chinese Bass has a bigger sound to me, but then
what do I know. I tried out those basses in the same room, but the strings
were different.
