Help Me out here guys, I think I'm going insane but this is what's happening: I just bought a squier mustang bass with the hope of this bass, BEING THE GOOD ONE! and it turns out it isn't. What is the problem? Well this strange noise that happens when I play the open E string and play the first three frets that is NOT fret buzz, it might be something else i dunno. It only happens when I play unplugged by the way, usually I don't play much with the amp unless it's for a gig or band practice and well I'm bothered, the same thing happened with my squier precision bass and i think it might be happening with my jay turser jazz bass. I tried everything, with these three basses, adjusting them, setting them up, getting them set up by a "pro" and I'm still unhappy. Sure I could always play with the amp, but that is not the point. Maybe because I'm such a control freak, I just want things to be perfect so it brings peace of mind. But I'm seriously dissapointed. It almost makes me want to switch to keyboards or stop playing music altogether. Something that I think is stupid because I'm pretty sure musicians back in the day didn't have the privileges I have of owning not one but 3 basses! It's the person not the tool that makes the magic. I simply want that tool to be perfect and sound perfect either unplugged or plugged. And when the bass is plugged is fine! And when it is unplugged well the E string Open or fretted on the first three frets makes this no normal noise, sure the note E sounds, but not without some "over - resonance" to go along with it. Tips, suggestions, comments?
