Hi. I'm the proud owner of a used-but-very-minty 2003 L-2000 Fretless (at the risk of hijacking my own thread - WHY do these beautiful, USA-made top-quality basses re-sell at a 30% discount to the Fender "counterparts" (which IMHO don't feel as high-quality?) Anyway, when I first got it, the intonation was weird. That is, all 4 strings were consistently set so that the intonation point was 1/8th of an inch or so BEHIND (ie. toward the headstock) the 12th fret double-dots. I double-checked the scale length and the 17" point is precisely between the double-dots, so I assumed this was just a weird personal preference of the former owner and "corrected" the intonation point to fall between the double-dots. But to do that - the saddles are now WAAY back - the E string is basically as far back as the little spring allows, and even the G is so far back that the little saddle-lock screw can't do it's job because its just in front of that saddle. Anyone else have this issue with their L-2000 (or other fretless)? This is my first fretless and I've never seen this issue on any other bass or guitar - could it be that the strings are old and stretched out? They sound fine to me - they are flatwounds, probably D'Addario's from the multi-colored ends - but I don't have a lot of sonic experience with fretlesses. Any advice appreciated.
