Hey all. I've been considering giving BEAD a shot, but I have a number of questions and I would like some advice before jumping in. As I understand it, to properly set up a bass for BEAD, one needs to file down the nut to accommodate the larger strings. I'm reluctant to apply such a one-way modification to any of my current basses for what is essentially an experimental exercise. Is this really the only way to do it? And once a bass's nut has been modified for BEAD, how would it play if it were to be restrung for EADG? Would it need a new nut? I'm not averse to the idea of picking up a beater bass (or would that be a BEADer bass?) for the sake of this experiment. I even have a local lead on an affordable Peavey Grind, which seems particularly well-suited for the task (35" scale, string through body). Any advice on my next steps?
