    Hello,

    I was wondering if I could become a solution here.
    I have a Marcus Miller jazz bass (4-string), I just bought it second hand.
    My E-string is way to loose, I play rock music, if I play that string it's hitting the fingerboard and creates a
    klicking sound and it's not bright sound. It's only with the E-string. I allready adjusted the trussrod and bridge is there anything I can do about it.
    It's not that I'm playing it to hard, even with a plectrum I have the same problem. Is it a string problem?
    I like the e-string quitte thight. What strings do I use best?
    Any suggestions...?
    Thanks in advance
