Okay, I have a Rondo Jazz bass, so I'll anticipate one of the answers - "Buy a better bass!" I just wanted a cheap bass for knocking around and the Rondo fit the bill, very impressed with the quality for the low price. HOWEVER, the first "G" string lets loose with a horrible SQUAAWWWWKKK when fretted, especially when playing Rush tunes where there's a riff from frets 7-12 that really needs to be played aggressively. Is it a matter of raising the string height or some similar adjustment? Get better strings? I still have on the strings that came with the bass. Thanks!
