    So I've noticed my endpin has started squeaking loudly whenever i turn the bass slightly while im playing. Even when I tighten it up, it comes undone. Does anyone know a quick fix for this? either a washer or WD-40? haha

    Are you tall? If the endpin is like all the way out, that puts undue pressure on the lil joint there and may cause it to squeak. That's what's going on with me and my bass.

    WD40 might cause it to stop squeaking, but if you're hearing that kind of noise, it might be a situation with all that stuff putting stress on the collar part there.

    We just covered this problem. See "Set up and Repair." The next subject (forum?) below on the TB DB page.
