Im pretty new to playing bass...or any musical instrument for that matter. The bass i got is a Ibanez sr485 with i think esp dx5 pickups. Anyhow my question is my G string is very quiet. On frets 2-5 very very quiet. If i play it open its louder but still much quieter then the other strings? It has a new battery in it. Is it normal for this model? And without spending alot of money is there anything that can be done or should be done? Maybe its only an issue because im playing it in my room with a small practice amp?
