I have recently purchased a 1971 Fender Musicmaster on eBay, which looks amazing and I got it for a great price!
However I think there is a problem with the fret, when I play 2nd fret on E the note it plays initially flat then sharpens to the F#.
I have played all the other notes and they all seem okay, which scares me because I believe that if it's not the strings then it would be the fret wouldn't it? And that would obviously devalue the bass whilst setting me back quite a bit.
I haven't changed the strings yet but I will be when I get time.
Thought I'd post on here because I have been trying to google it but as it's quite specific i'm getting nowhere so if anybody knows anything about this i'd really appreciate it.
There is a picture below, not for any reason I want to show how lovely it looks, as it's about all it's got going for itself at the minute. Hope to gig soon with it now!
Go easy on me this is my forum cherry, thanks.
