Couple of newby questions

  1. Ok, I got a bass for Christmas 2 years ago. I've played it a bunch but "seriously" like everyday for only about a month or two. I've been playing it and a friend of mine said I needed to get it setup. Well, I don't know how to do that. I have the strings in tune and stuff, I can't do any of the technical stuff like putting a guitar together, but I can play it. I might bring it to the music store in a few days and get them to set it up and when I accidentally jiggle the chord it makes really bad noises, so I'll get that checked out to. Oh, and one of my knobs is coming loose too.

    Thanks in ahead of time,
  2. Oh, yea. I've looked on a website and I've intoned (?) my bass, by moving my saddles forward and backward, and all are right now except the E string I had it all the way back against the bridge where it wouldn't go any further and it was still off. Do you know why?
