I ordered and just received 4 string Ibanez Premium SR1200. I don't think this thing is shielded enough. Its got that touch the strings, kill the buzz thing. Its not that loud, so if it were only audible when I wasn't playing it wouldn't be so bad, but sometimes if I slide my left hand while playing it makes a static crackle (I guess it is going lightly in and out of contact with the strings). I think I am going to send it back. Any tips or tricks to try before I do? The bass plays and sounds great otherwise, but I don't think I want to go foil-McGuyver on a new bass.
