Hello!
I’m a new musician, and I have had my fender Jbass for around two months. My problem is that all of the strings lie on the first 8 frets, rendering it unplayable. I’ve tried adjusting the truss rod but it did not do anything. Maybe I did it incorrectly? Anyway I’d appreciate help getting this all sorted out.

With what you write and no picture ;

Look it is the truss rod , too staight.... or nut problem but never on new bass
How play the bass when you buy it ? Strings lies or not ?
lies ; return on warranty
No lies ; it is the truss rod for sure if you do not work on the guitar

If you are not sure what you do or do not have the good tool for the truss rod nut , see a luthiers or return on warranty to the store you bought it

Yikes! Sounds like you have maxed out the truss rod and turned your neck from concave to convex. You do not know what you are doing! Take your bass to a reputable luthier or technician. And HURRY!
