Action is too high on my Geddy

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by mello_bedwetter, Feb 28, 2008.

  1. I just bought a Geddy Lee Jazz and love it but the string action is too high. I'd like to lower the action some. Is this something I should do or try to find a Luthier? I know most on here probably do this themselves. I never have done it and really don't want to make things worse. Any simple way to do this without me screwing it up?
    I don't know of any Luthiers around here either, another problem. Try not to be too tough on me. This is probably something easy but as I said I've never tried it. Thanks.

    Right off the top of my head, I remembered a forum post on the Dingwall website. Sheldon tells how he gets the action set for his Dingwall basses (the best playing/sounding basses in the world IMO :)....just my opinion, don't get mad :)). You should be able to easily find it. It's very explanatory and easy to do.

    Good luck.
  3. Thanks Jedi...and I'm not mad. I just appreciate your help. I've been away from playing music for about 27 years and just started up again about a year ago. I'm just trying to learn some things on here. Again...thanks.

    Setting the action is definitely something you can do yourself. Try doing a search on projectguitar.com, google, or yahoo to get an idea of how to adjust the action some. However, if you have any specific questions feel free to post here.
