    I'm just starting, and I purchased an SX Bass because people here seem to recommend them as pretty good beginner guitars. But when I try to play notes, there's a rattling sound like the strings are rattling against frets. How do I fix this, and how much would it cost?

    go to set-up and repair forum and read-up and setting up.
  3. Good advice. But also if you are not comforatable doing the setup yourself, bring it to a local shop to have them do a setup. Around here it typically goes for $30ish.
