Hey, I built a bass with my dad about a year ago. We took it to the luthier at cherry street guitar in galesburg, he was great, took it home over the weekend to fix my volume nob(which was basically a loud or soft nob, no inbetween). He made a few minor adjustments to the trussrod. He told me that we had the trussrod just about to the max, and he had tightened it all the way, apparently our truss slot was a little tall? im not sure, anyway he told me to use light gauge strings, so I have been... I just wondered what all this ment and if i should be watching for anything, and what the effects of heavier strings might be... It has an uncommonly high action(ive learned to play it and like it), and ive thought about routing down a spot for my bridge(indepenent bridges).. would this be ill advised?
