    Anyone know where I can get these?

    I was surprised that I couldn't get them from the Ibanez web site. Then I was a bit pis$ed off I couldn't find them anywhere!

    I want to return my 2010 Ibanez BTB 6 string back to factory specs (Relief, string height, nut height).

    Anyone?

    Cheers,

    Most of those Ibanez manuals are pretty generic. They were written for as many basses as possible. I wouldn't bother setting it up to factory standards. They tend to specify high action and a lot of relief, just to make sure the bass won't rattle or clank. The manual which came with my GSR200EX doesn't even specify the pickup height. The action it specifies is ridiculously high (1/8" for E). The nut height isn't mentioned at all.

    yeah, most "factory" specs are lousy, meant for instruments that come out of the shipping box and hang in "guitar warehouse" stores in different climates with no techs on staff.

    as such, "no buzz" is more important than "easy to play", because that's all the unschooled beginner customer notices.

    Thanks guys.

    Yeah, I moved the setup multiple times over the year and I just wanted some place to start.

    IN comparison to where my setup had taken me, the Ibanez standard was actually better, so I must have been in a bad way.

    Thanks for your help.
