    I made a thread a while back stating I had problems playing my P. I had it looked at and nothing is wrong with the neck or the build or anything. But unlike my Ibanez, when I play the strings with any amount of force above a patsy the strings just sound real buzzy and poppy and won't go any damn where. This has happened with low and high gauge strings. I am at a loss. To be clearer again, when I play the strings moderately hard, the sound it makes can hardly be called music and I hate it. I can't figure out the problem. I have had suggestions of filing frets and raising up action, etc. I dont know though. Help please

    Have another bass player play your bass. If they have no problem then maybe you have a technique problem. If the problem is the bass, consider having a professional setup done. Its really difficult to nail down your problem sitting on the other side of this computer monitor.
