hey Everyone, First off im entirely new here so i hope this is posted in the right place. I recently got a new bass (marcus miller v3 from sire). All the sire basses come with pickup covers. I really like the look and the idea of having a rest for my hand so i installed it. Now i love playing fingerstyle with the cover on but when i slap on the e-string it makes a loud metallic "clunk" as the e-string hits the pu cover. It doesnt happen on the a string and i dont think im hitting the e string to hard (i am still a beginner though but i get the right slap sound with the a string). I installed the cover right over the neck pickup so the position doesnt seem to be the problem. Also i have a very straight neck and have tried lowering the action but if i made it any lower i get fret buzz. The action was also pretty low from the get go (not super low but definitely not high). I was wondering if anybody has similar experiences or has some other advice. I still have the factory strings on the bass and they are a no name product If that makes any difference. Thanks in advance for your help, sorry if my english isnt perfekt im not a native speaker.
