    The epiphone I have did not have a sound post when I got it. Is that a problem?... it was owned by a church play who bought it new in the 40's. And an article online said these basses came with a sound post patch. And I have no clue what that is... the reason I ask is I'm getting a lot of feedback off this bass when it's amped.

    Also I get rattle from my end pin when I play my d string. Advice on that would also be appreciated.
  2. It definitely needs a sound post. You might want to slack the tension off the strings immediately until you can get a post fitted. The post patch shouldn't be contributing to your feedback issue in any way. I don't know if the lack of sound post is contributing to it, but others here will know more...
