    anyone ever have any luck alleviating the dreaded dead spot phenomenon on the G string at the seventh "fret" position on a fretless G&L? mine just went dead the other day. i thought it would never happen with this bass. oh how i prayed it wouldn't!:(
  2. If it just went dead the other day but had been okay previously, it just might be time for new strings. I know that old broken in set of flats is as tough to part with as a favorite T-Shirt, but you might have to bite the bullet.

    Dead spots don't, to my knowledge, suddenly appear (unless you have modified the mass of your neck or headstock). Chances are, the dead spot was already there and, for whatever reason, you only noticed it just now. I'd check this one out with a luthier...
  4. Dead spots are a fact of life, just work around it.
