    Hoping TB can educate me a little here (as they successfully have before). I just got a new bass in the mail and I quickly noticed a really strong harmonic when I play notes at the 12th fret… mainly just noticeable on the A and E strings. I can mute the note right away and it still rings loudly, giving me a harmonic no matter how I play it. The action is set pretty high so I'm wondering if this is something a set up can take care of.

    I tried searching and all of the results were of the type that involved practicing better technique to get rid of them. I'm telling you it's not that kind of issue.
