...is about half as loud as the rest of the strings on my 6 string. This is a real downer considered ALL of my money went into this bass. The damn sound of my fingers plucking the string is is louder than the notes plucked. I raised the action pretty high today, probably .5" above the 12th fret. Even then, the note of the open string is barely audible. I guess I've learned my lesson about ordering basses direct without playing them first, but of course, being 15 years of age and not having 3 grand for a high end bass, this was what I could afford. I would be EXTREMELY grateful if someone could give me advice on how to fix this problem, to just get the B string to be as loud as the rest of the strings. Is there something I could replace, something I could modify? Thank you.
