    I just got a gauge from Stew-Mac and they claim that factory spec on Action for a fender bass is .022-.020" at the first fret and +or- .016" at the 17th. :eyebrow: With the relief set at .014" at the 7th fret. :rolleyes: Do any of you find this to be accurate? 34" scale round wound .045-.065-.080-1.00 strings :confused:
