    I am building a bass with one. I have never worked with one before. Should I cut slots in it for string guides? Thanks ..t

    Some would say that you should file grooves in the saddles of the BAII, and Leo Quan even recommends this, but I haven't yet and I don't have any problems.

    If you don't file the saddles, eventually your strings will wear into them. I've had my BAII for about a month or two, and there's already some slight "groovadge" in the saddles.
