  3. FWF, please do a search of the archive at the bottom of the page. This is the most common answered question here in setup and you'll find hours of discussions concerning the why's and wherefore's.
  4. that thing you're hoping to adjust is called a 'truss rod'. just to make your search easier. you'll find pretty much everything you'd ever want to know about it. we're all paranoid about adjusting it, because i can make or break (literally) your bass.
