Interesting question: Can a bass be "too nice" for your style of playing? What I mean is, if you have an "agressive playing style", can an instrument be so specifically designed for "softer play" that it doesn't respond well when played agressively? I'm not sure if I am explaining myself very well, so, here is what is "going on". I recently traded my Stingray for a Lakland Skyline 44-02. When I got it home and started playing it through MY rig, I noticed that it made all kinds of, "clicking" sounds. Turns out all the unwanted noises were coming from me- So, I began to play with more finesse, and all noises gone- Do I just need to raise the action? Any thoughts would be appriciated!
