hey there !!! i bought a fender j.bass on craigslist is a mim 2008 model in almost new condition from a kid that didn't play much , it had plastic on the pickguard etc etc , as my main bass ( active deluxe jazz bass mim) is at the shop waiting for a new pre amp from fender , i did the craigslist ..... purchase. i understand that im comparing active with a passive but the one i bought used is really bright sound specially when slaping n tapping also the rised poles on the pickups make contact with the strings , is any of these issues normal ??? or common cause this is my 2nd fender but i had the active one for a while amd dont remember any of these stuff HELP PLEASE !!!
