    Mine (in C) makes sort of a Whuuuummmpung! sound. Or maybe a Burrrrrmmnnnn.

    What sound does you're bass make?

    (Sorry people, I'm about as hocked up on dayquil as you can get. Y'all know that stuff is like 30% alcohol?)

    Mine keeps going:

    "For the love of all that's holy, learn how to play or put me down!"

    I'm thinking of e-mailing Fender to see if this is normal... :(
