I've had a 2008 Fender American Standard since July '08. It's been my primary bass for the past 5.5 years, and have used it extensively for recording/gigging/etc. Does any one else feel that this model takes a fair amount of effort to properly fret the strings? Since developing some possible RSI issues, I've done a bit to modify my bass' action. I've had a set-up lowering the action, and switched to the lowest tension roundwound strings I could find (TI JR344). Even still, I don't notice a huge improvement in fretting ease with the TIs - when most TBers praise playability after restringing. This has left me a little perplexed. Has anyone else had a similar experience with this bass? I'm getting a bit frustrated, and am wondering if instead it's an issue with my technique instead? Recommendations on ways to remedy this bass issue/similar basses to try instead?
