I know that there have been plenty of threads on fixing neck dive (I've read most of them,) but they all seem to recommend a) ultralight tuners b) using a suede strap c) moving the strap button. None of those options really help me. I've recently inherited my former teacher and college jazz band director's '69 P Bass. The body has dried out (and relic'd hard) over the years and it neck dives pretty bad. It means the world to me and I want to keep it totally stock, so I'm not into swapping the tuners or moving the strap button. I also hate suede straps- they pull on your shirt and don't let you move the instrument around. Anybody had an experience successfully adding weight to the body of a bass? There's of course some room in the body cavity to tuck some weight. Any insight on what would work best for that, or how much I should add?
