I was just wondering if anyone here has any experience with a Schecter C-5. I bought one fairly recently, and it's my first 5 string...second bass ever. I love the sound that comes out of it (considering my 4 string is a Silvertone, that's probably no surprise). Anywho, I was wondering how to get rid of the clicking sound that happens when I play the B and the E strings. I've tried moving the sliders up and down the bridge, which a guitarist that I work with suggested, and that did next to nothing. I was thinking that maybe it's the truss rod needing to slightly be adjusted, but A: the clicking is only when I play the lowest (sounding) 6 or so frets, and B: I have no clue where the truss rod adjustment is done on this thing. I know I seem like a total noob, but then again I am. Also, while asking about stuff on this bass that I have no clue about, I was wondering about the strings: There was a tag on the bass when I bougt it that said it was equipped with Elixir strings, which it is, and on the other side it said I could only use Elixir strings...other strings would damage my frets...is this true? I like the strings, but they're like nearly 60 bucks a set. Well, sorry about the long post, and thanks in advance for the input.
