Hi Folks,
Yesterday I got an Ashbory bass, which is a neat little toy with a big sound!
Itīs a bit strange to play on silicone strings, but it really works. Nevertheless, I have some problems: The e-string cannot be tuned correctly. If the open string is tuned to "e", pressing the string at any fret results in too sharp tones. Actually, the string is "too long", which can be helped by puting a small object und the first half fret. To my opinion the extremely low-quality nut causes this problem (BTW: the bass looses its tuning very fast). Has anyone of you guys experience with this pygmy-bass and nows how to solve my problem?

Thanks in advance, and donīt forget to visit EPīs site ;-)))
