I’ve just bought a second hand Squier bass. When it arrived I immediately restringed it and that was when I noticed that the action was extremely high - Almost half an inch!
I adjusted the saddles to see if that’d make any difference. It did but not enough. I then decided to adjust the truss rod. This also didn’t make a difference and I’m not sure if the truss rod is broken? It felt very forced turning clockwise however when I moved it back moved with no force whatsoever, as if it was just spinning.
I’ve played guitar for years and I’ve never had any issues like this but honestly I have no idea what I’m doing! The action of the strings is highest towards the middle of the neck?
At first I thought the bass was supposed to have a really high action but after checking with friends who play bass this is not the case.
