Hi all I'm considering buying an older 3/4 czech ply bass which might serve as a workhorse for some blues gigs... It's cheap and unattractice enough that I would like to do some adjustments myself. Right now, the bridge height is 6" at its highest and the strings are set fairly high. If I simply lower the bridge to get the strings where I want them the bridge will probably end up at 5.5." I know this isn't recommended, and that closer to a 7" bridge height is typical. My question is, how bad is it to have such a low bridge? (I mean sound-wise and future health-wise). By the way, the fingerboard is coming unglued so I could consider putting in a shim to change the neck angle. The neck joint doesn't seem stressed so I'd rather not reset the neck. Are there previous posts describing how to install a shim to change the neck angle? Any help is greatly appreciated!
