Hi guys, I'm new here but this forum kept coming up while I was researching which bass I should get, so it makes sense to turn to you with this question: I just got a brand new American Standard Precision Bass and decided to change the strings because the factory ones sounded horrible (I put in medium-sized flatwounds). However, I accidentally wound the E string too tightly because I'm an idiot and also because I'm kind of new to basses and have more experience working with guitars instead. I heard a crack, and that's when I realized I had over-wound it. Anyway, I finished stringing the bass and tuned it. It sounds and feels beautifully now but I noticed a tiny hairline fracture in the body finish at the base of the neck (on the lower cutaway). I have no idea if it was there before I restrung the bass because I never examined it too thoroughly. I've read that these are normal, but is it possible I caused it by over-winding the E string? If so, could this in any way seriously affect the bass? I'm not really concerned about the appearance or resell value, I just want to make sure this doesn't lead to a more serious problem down the road (especially while I still have the 30-day warranty in effect). And like I said, it feels great and sounds good to me so I'd rather not exchange it. What do you guys think?
