I thought I got a good deal recently by grabbing this from someone for 120 bucks...but now I've also discovered the fun involved in ferreting out info on a rare piece of equipment no one has ever heard of before. I know this is a long stretch, but does anyone know exactly how the truss rods are adjusted on this model? Some double trusses apparently work opposite each other, and some will work going the same direction? I'd like to lower the action a bit, but I'm hesitant to do so, as I have never dealt with this particular type of setup. Epiphone apparently has zero info about this (apparently quite rare) bass. This is all the info I can find at all about this model: http://epiphonewiki.com/index.php/Expert-6 Also, I want to replace the strings, but I'm not sure what the 'proper' thickness might be (never owned a 6-string before). I'd like to throw a D'Addario EXL165-6 .032-.135 set on this, but will this be ok? I think sometimes it screws up the nut if an improper size is used. Lastly, the truss rods cover is missing. Can anyone suggest a possible replacement that wouldn't look too weird? It's comparatively gigantic as opposed to other 4, 5 and even 6 string bass ones. The two bottom screw holes are 34 mm apart, and I just can't find any cover that's this wide, even ones for big old Ibanez 6 strings are smaller. I might have to create one from scratch if that's the only option. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. You guys are the best!
