Hello, I just want to share with you some sort of a trick I have been using when setting up a bass - maybe you know it or have something to say to it, so please feel free to comment. It concerns the neck and body joint - with strings on, after tuning to a normal tuning, I slightly loose the neck-holding screws - two or three turns, just slightly so that neck can so-so move, then I slightly move with the neck to allow it to settle in the neck pocket by force of the strings pull. Then I tighten the screws back. In my theory, this settling in the neck pocket should increase the sustain and helps the overall resonance. What do you think? I thought about doing the same with bridge-holding screws but didn't tried it yet.
