If a fretboard has a slight dead spot on the high D (7th fret G string), is there anyway to fix it?
You didn't try to search the forum, did you? ;-)
There are many threads about this already. Lots of information about addressing dead spots... In short, you can reduce (sometimes eliminate) or at least change the location of the dead spot with weight. The already existing threads will guide you better!
Ok and no.
I eliminated a bad one on my P by dropping the tuning to DGCF. Bonus - I prefer that tuning now.
Grab a Fender Fat Fender I use them on two basses.
Fat Finger ;')
+1. None of my basses is tuned E standard anymore these days. Adapting to different tunings was/is easy for me as I'm a 'by ear' player.
