: Hey Alfonso,
: I also own a Squire P-Bass. Its nice to start out on. The only complain I have with mine is that the action (distance in the string to fretboard), so I am going to look for a repair shop by me that will help me lower the screws. I recommend that you do the same, especially since it gets very hard to play around the 12th or so fret and tapping is difficult as well.

: Hope that helped.

You can lower the bridge saddles yourself....all you need is an allen wrench. Experiment a little and I am sure you will find yourself compitant. its fun. It cant hurt the bass and you can always raise and lower them to your hearts desire. Look down the side of the neck(hold the back of the bass up to your nose and look right down the edge of the neck) Does it curve up? it should ever so slightly, but if its too drastic or you are not sure, then you should take it into a qualified person. ask him to show you haw to adjust the struss rod.( you should know how to do this if you ever want to change string size or tune down to C# or D you may need to adjust it.) Good luck.......john
