    I bought the Sound Gear SF705 5 string fretless. Looks good and nice and light. But I have brought it back to the store four times. When I'm on the gig around the third set the sound starts to distort and I get a buzz that sounds like a bad ground. I change basses and the next day it starts all over again. The repair teck's can't figure it out. Any suggestions?

    Check to see if the output jack is defective. If there is any crossover on the battery negative from the ring to the sleeve, it will short out the battery. As the battery goes down, you will lose output and it will go distorted. I had to change the output jack on my Ibby for the same reason.
