    Hi all,

    I do all of my own setups (mainly thanks to all you people here at TB!). However, is it bad for a bass to have little or no relief in the neck? The reason I'm asking is because I set my p bass up with relief originally around .010 - .012. However, since the weather changed (I live in Chicago), the neck straightened up quite a bit. Now the relief is around .002! There is no buzzing and the action is super low the way I like it. Is the no or little relief bad for the bass?
    Muchas gracias!
     
  2. No buzzing, low action the way YOU like it.... i dont see any problem.

    Just keep an eye on it, if it flattens out too much then you may start to go the other way via means of back bow.

    :D:D

  4. Me 3. I live in MN so I can relate to extreme changes in weather/humidity. I'd keep an eye on it but I don't think you should have any problems.

    Thanks all for putting up with me being so anal. I might loosen it just a tad (1/16th of a turn...is that possible?). Damn Chicago weather...
