Ok, before I ask my question, I'll post a little background info on my situation. I bought a Spector NS2000/5 Neck-thru 5-string bass this past March, and while it's a very nicely constructed bass, it appears to have some setup problems. Soon after I bought it, I noticed that I had to press down very hard on the fretboard to get a clean sound out of it. I assumed this was just a small setup problem, and over the course of several months, I tried quite a few small adjustments to the action, the neck relief, and to my playing technique, to no avail. Finally I decided to take it in and have it set up by a professional. However, after I got it back, I noticed it was still very hard to press down enough. Earlier this afternoon, I was at a music store and had the chance to play a Spector NS2000Q5, the bolt-on counterpart to my NS2000/5. This bass played very well, and had none of the problems I had been experiencing with my Spector. Now I knew there must have been something wrong, but I have no idea what it could be. I'm suspecting it could be a high fret (or even several), but I really have no idea, and it could be something different altogether that I'm not familiar with. Can anyone help me out?
