Got My Bass Set-up

  1. What a difference a set-up makes !!! No fret buzzing, wierdo noises, etc. The thing plays like "butta" now.

    I had it set-up for low-action, and restrung with D'Addario strings. All in all, the best money I've spent in a long time.

    For those who are having problems with the instrument just not sounding, playing, or feeling right, get a set-up.

  2. JMX

    Yup, way better than getting new pickups...
  3. Agreed. This is often how one's MIM Fender can 'feel' better to play than a £1500+ bass.

    BTW if you're lucky like me minor setup work can sometimes be FOC- I have been going to the Bass Centre in Birmingham or Wapping for major G.A.S therapy for some years and when my StingRay's low B was out of shape they gave it new strings + sorted the neck relief/action, no questions asked. :)
  4. I went to a local shop that is highly recommended by some guys I know who've been gigging for a while, so I knew it would be done right.

    Some guys have all the luck with the gratis work ... I REALLY would like to try different set-ups for different days of the week, Mothers Day, Valentines Day, Christmas Eve ....
