  1. i just started playing bass and i'm not sure but i think there is something wrong with it. i got it for free from my sister. she used to beat it up all the time and it sounds like crap. i think it might just be the strings but im not sure. if anyone knows anything about it could u tell me. thanx
     
  2. What exactly is the problem? You say it sounds like crap, but that could mean a lot of stuff. Changing the strings might help if the tone's really mushy. If there's a lot of fret noise than the truss rod might need adjusted. This should probably be in the "Setup" or "Basses" topics.

    Sorry purplechains, but we really do need to know more to be able to help you. What sort of bass is it? What condition is it in? What exactly is the problem?

    Anyway, this belongs in Setup, so that's were it's going.
