    Probably like most bassists when I slap I like my action high, and when I tap I like it real low. But I'm having trouble finding the perfect action for both at the same time. I was wondering if it's possible to raise the neck to give higher action over the body and lower action over the fretboard? If this is possible how would I go about doing so?
    Thanks for any help
