    I'm trying to raise the action but don't know where on the bass to do it. Most basses have a place where I can use a Allen wrench but Its either not there or I can't seem to find it? Thanks

    Here is the bridge- it's not the Philip screw under the string is it? I prob will take it somewhere but I'm just trying to figure it out.

    Yeah, for sure the allen screws on the bridge saddles. They adjust each string individually. Most basses I have use a 1.5 mm allen wrench for these. Good luck!!

    Look at the black pieces that the strings rest on. They each have 2 allen screws.

    Yup, now I see them--almost identical to the setup in the ABM bridges I have on a couple of basses.

    Ok thanks guys I thought that black piece might be it but wasn't sure. It just seems like a rather unique way to adjust the action compared to other basses
