    I've used Gary's method on both my Carvins (fretted and fretless) and they became very pleasant to play - for a change!

    For the longest time I treated set-up and intonation as "black magic" that I needed to "have done" by a pro for $50 every 6 months.

    Gary takes the mystery out of the procedure - and now I'm at the stage where I'm totally comfortable making bi-monthly micro adjustments to keep playabilty in the sweet zone.

    Don't fear your truss rod - just respect it. :D

  3. I post that manual quite often to newbies when they ask about setup. I thinks it's the best on the web, it's put together very well, so even the newest bassist can understand how to do a setup.

    Gary Willis rocks when it comes to instruction!

    Actually, the link to this site is here
    the top-most link in the forum. :)
  5. Nonsqtr don't worry, I posted this link at the top AFTER you posted the link.

    I'd been meaning to do that for months but finally got a fire under my butt.
