Just received a new Fender '62 reissue from Musician's Friend. Based on the specs, reading every review I could find, and my experience with other basses, I thought it would be perfect for me. I couldn't find one in any of my local music shops, so I took the plunge and ordered it online. Here's the thing -- the action is HIGH! I mean really, at times uncomfortably HIGH. I can feel my left-hand fingers rising way off the fingerboard to be able to come down on each string, and it strikes me as it just can't be right. Compared to other P-basses I've played, it's definitely higher and harder to play (the thickness of the neck doesn't phase me at all - it's the height of the strings from the neck). I think the neck may be a little bowed, as it seems to be pulling away from the strings too much. But I'm not experienced in this, and thus not really sure. I'm afraid to mess with a truss rod adjustment out of fear that I won't then be able to return to to MF without a problem should something go wrong. I did, however, adjust the bridge saddles downward to try to get the strings closer to the neck, but I couldn't do it nearly enough without triggering buzz all along the neck. So -- for those who own or have played these puppies, is the action noticeably and intentionally higher on this bass, or do I have a problem bass that I should ask MF to replace? Thanks!
