Bass Setup Problem

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by J4KO, Apr 14, 2005.

  1. Hi Today I got new strings for my spector
    Im not really good at all the guitar mechanics
    and when I play the first fret of each string it makes a dead flab sound... anyways so i highered the thing on the bridge making it a little slanted... it fixed the problem but it juss doesnt feel right... any suggestions?

    Setup board, and get your bass setup. You probably need to adjust the neck.. but don't do it yourself if you don't know what you're doing.

    Bring it to a set up guy.
    Sounds like you have a little back bow.
    Where the strings a lighter gauge?
