i've had this bass for about a year now at first it was amazing but recently i've been getting alot of rattling with the strings, you can hear it live and with recording. i've taken it to shops, changed strings and nothing seems to fix it. i'm pretty heavy handed when playing but even softer you can hear the rattle. i'm using a .125 and a .110 for the bottom strings cause they are the only ones i play with so far.
I have a Harley Benton bass that cost me like £80 and it sounds better than my Fender which was £~450 which aint right.
