1. Look along the neck - compare it to the super straight string. Is it straight or a little bowed. Ideally you want a tiny bit of forward bow (relief).
2. String height - a good starting point is to slide a 10p piece under the strings, on top of the 12th fret - it should just catch on the string... Adjust bridge saddles to suit.
3. Now have a look at the bridge saddles - are they fully down on the plate or way high with the screws maxed out? Ideal is about half way through their adjustment range. If way out the neck angle is wrong.
4. Nut height - this may be your problem. Fret each string at the 3rd fret and slide a strip of paper (standard copier paper) between 1st fret and string - it should just fit - more than a double thickness or less than the single paper is a problem.
5. Check for high/low frets - a straight edge or fret rocker is needed here.
To fix 1 requires a truss rod adjustment - with the correct size tool, a newish instrument (and some common sense) this can be attempted - should only take a quarter/half turn. Otherwise requires a visit to a bass tech...
To fix 3 requires a shim in the neck pocket.
To fix 4 & 5 requires a visit to a bass tech and either a replacement nut or some filing.
