I just completed an intonation job on my bass. Now I have completly set up a bass, from start to finish. It took about 4 months but its there now. I'm sure I'll be tweeking it here and there. The bass came from Japan in the beginning of Nov. 2005. It came with a dead straight neck and a truss rod nut fully tight. The pups needed such a set up that I had to extend the pole pieces upward through the windings to get an even volume from the split humbuckers.
