    I hope this is the right forum for this question. I recently got a fender bg 31 as a gift after a long hiatus from bass playing. I love the bass but would like to have a pro set up. I took it to my local shop and they just kind of blew me off. The bass was not bought there as my great new wife(who had never even seen me play the bass) bought it elsewhere. I know that it is not the most expensive bass but come on he should have told me more than just try different strings. The action is a little high I believe...but this is my first acoustic and I'd just like to have someone with more knowledge than me look at it. Looks like playing bass is back for me..hoping for an electric next x mas:hyper:, or maybe I will have to treat myself. Thanks for any and all replies:bassist:
  2. I do my own setups, but I've heard from other people about a couple places.

    There's a guy (I forget his name) at Sam Ash on Mayfield that's supposed to be pretty good.

    I've heard horror stories about setups performed at Almira Sound Studios, so I'd avoid them if I were you.
