Long Story Short, I would like some quick Tips. I have been setting up Basses for 30 years but I had a friend that always took care of my Nuts for me. Did I just say that? Seriously though! just a few Quick questions. Starting with an otherwise perfect setup(For My Taste of course): 1. How far should the strings be from the 1st Fret? I usually use 2 business cards as a guide. 2. Should I take the Nut off. 3. How much glue is holding the nut in place? 4. Or should I just file it while on the bass? I realise I need to put some masking tap down to keep from scratching the finish.
