    I made my fretted bass in to a fretless about 2 months ago and the high action pisses me off...

    at 12th fret, bass string = 4.5mm treble string = 4.0mm

    I tried everything from Truss adjustment to eliminating bridge saddle screws and everything.

    is this really high, or am I just too wimp to play it? tell me ur opinions ppl

    Did you adjust the nut?
