    I live in Parsippany. I like to know who does great bass setups within my area - Morris country?

    I saw post around here asking the same thing. I think a dude in Fair Lawn was suggested Dangelo or something like that.
    But setups are easy. What are you having problems with?

    The neck pocket was cut too deep in the body so it needs to be shimmed. The saddles are completely bottomed out, thus action is too high.
    I can do general setup with truss rod, saddles and intonation adjustments. But nut work and shimming on basses needs a pro or someone who knows.

    George Stritter in Newton. He did a nice job setting up my Spector. He also does custom installs and repairs.
