Whenever I fret a string I seem to be getting an excessive clank sound, like you can hear the string hitting the fret/fretboard. It seems to be worst on the E and gets noticebly worse as strings age. The bass in questions is a 2001 Warwick Thumb. Does anyone know if this could be related to a setup problem. Maybe the strings are too high, pups to close to string, too much relief in the neck. I've experimented by changing most of these things, but to no avail. Maybe its just a Warwick thing, but I don't remember this being a problem in the past. I've played this bass for almost 6 years now. Its gotten to the point where I'm so sick of it, that I just roll my highs back a bit to minimize it, but my tone takes a hit then. If anyone has any ideas or has seen a similar problem, any suggestions would be appreciated.
