    Well, like said in a previous thread, I set up my bass BEAD, and made the proper adjustments to the action...and it's rather odd, With my B string detuned to A, it's still taughter than the Bs I've seen on a range of Peavy's, Fenders, Corts and yikes, Even a Cirrus.

    Is there any reason for this phenomenon, being taughter on a 4 neck? Or am I just really lucky?
    Surprisingly, there is little to no click with the proper technique changes. The only problem thus far, is that my drummer complains the A is so low through my Eden Rig, that it sometimes sounds like his bass drum, and he loses time :D.

    All in all, a good experience. I'm in no hurry to go to EADG anytime soon (especially with that nut re-filed). Oh, and today, I dropped some Schaller Straploks on it, and now, the bass, not the strings click :p....
