Fundamentals?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by El Zilcho, Oct 4, 2003.


  1. Could anyone be kind enough to point me to a resource that details a stringed instrument setup?

    I have am Ibanez that sounds a plays great, but as you all can well imagine, I want it to sound better :rolleyes:

    The problem I have is that I don't understand the process of making adjustments to the string height and length and what affect that has on the overall tuning of the string... Did that make sense?

    So before I make myself into a bafoon and cause my Bass to sound worse I was hoping I could get a lesson in the fundamentals of string tuning.

    You know, I like that Gary Willis page but I think one thing it fails to mention is how important having correct height/placement at the top nut is. If that's not in good shape, all of that other information is a lot less useful IMO.
